Score one for gaming and literacy

Conversation in the Stacks today:

Patron: I’m looking for books on Mythology, can you tell me where to find them?

Me: Sure, let me walk you over.

[we walk over to proper section]

Me: Are you looking for any type of mythology?

Patron: I’m looking for Greek Mythology. I’ve been playing this game ‘God of War’ and it deals a lot with mythology.

So to recap: The patron came to the library looking for a book about Greek Mythology because his interest was piqued by a video game. I can now say with honesty that video games bring people to the library for books. I’ve seen it myself.

  1. But, I’ve been here all day, and I can honestly tell you all he did NOT come in dressed like that. I kind of wish he had.

    Still… nice story.
