Level Up at Mentor Public Library

Our MPL Arcade kids built their own Mario Kart levels out of blocks.

Kids built their own Mario Kart levels out of blocks during our MPL Arcade Club meeting.

Sometimes, we get asked why we lend video games at our library.

Well, we love a good story, whether it be a book or a film. And what our games like Zelda or Arkham Asylum but epics in which you get to be the protagonist?

Moreover, our Summer Reading theme this year is Build a Better World, and what our games like Minecraft or Super Mario Maker but another way to build?

We “level up” the fun with MPL Arcade, our video-game club for kids, where we play a different game each month. For example, in May, we played Mario Kart. Kids even built their own levels out of blocks while they waited for controllers.

Our next meeting is 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 15. It’s open to all kids in third through sixth grade. You can sign up for MPL Arcade on our website or by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

By the way, if you’re in seventh grade or older but still want to play, you can play retro games with our Time Travelers Club on June 7 or check out the Clashing Controllers Club on June 21.

Both Time Travelers and Clashing Controller meet at our Lake Branch.
