We would like to present a session on the Anoka County Library's board game collection. Our collection is unique in that we circulate these items outside our library. Our goals for the program are: Describe how this collection was proposed and sheparded through the library board Discuss the community's reaction and incredible success we've had with this collection Provide practical examples about what works and what issues we've encountered when circulating board games.

We also want to challenge participants to think beyond even board games and realize there many different types of materials that can be in a library's collection.
