By  | 

Fans of board and video games from around the world test their knowledge and skills.

It's International Game Day and the Beverly Library held a celbration of their own.

Kids took time out of their day to play various board games.

They also got to show off their gaming skills on the nintendo wii.

The event is to reconnect the community through the library around educational, recreational and social value of all types of games.

One parent feels it's a great time for families to bond together.

"It's a great way of families getting together, just having a good family value time and playing games that teaches kids you know just how to take turns, good social skills with the kids to not argue over it and just have a good time with them," says Ashley Chipps.

More than one-thousand libraries around the world showcase gaming programs and services in support of the event.

In 2011, nearly 28 thousand people played games at libraries across the nation and in other countries.
