Campbell Library plugging in to video game tournaments this summer

From San Jose Mercury News

“Before ending their soccer match the two acknowledged each other’s skills with a soccer ball and game controller. While Jared plays soccer during the summer in camps, he spent the afternoon of June 17 playing the game in a different way.The two played video soccer games on a PlayStation console at the library in honor of the real-life UEFA Euro 2016 and Copa America Centenario tournaments.In the community room of the Campbell Library, Jared and Griffin, a librarian for teen and adults services, squared off on a virtual soccer field, each representing teams in soccer leagues across Europe. The room was far enough from patrons to have conversation above a whisper, so the two players could laugh, talk video games and exchange friendly banter.The video game event is one of many programs Griffin hopes to expand during the summer for teens and adults.”
