New Video Games

Game On!  Video Games at the Library

Did you know that you can borrow video games from the library?

Most of us can't afford to buy every video game that looks interesting. That's where the Library can help.  Borrowing a video game from the Library is a great way to "test" out a game and see whether it's worth buying.

Paper Mario Color Splash

The Library's video game collection includes games on a variety of platforms:  Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii, and WiiU, and for different age levels:  E (Everyone), T (Teen), and M (Mature.)  Games for kids and teens are shelved on spinner racks near the computer area of the Main Floor, while M-rated games are located in the audio book room.

Video games can be checked out for two weeks.  Teens ages 15 and under must have a parent/guardian fill out a permission slip at the Main Desk before borrowing M-rated games.  Need more play time?  You can usually renew a game for another two weeks.  Borrowers are limited to one game per library card.  Holds may be placed on our game collection with a Middleborough library card.
