The Right NOT to Read “ Libraries must understand that non-readers are a tax paying part of our service group who deserve some kind return on their dollar, without having librarians look down their nose at them. As scary as it may sound, people do have a right NOT to read.” — Steve Bertrand, Assistant Director of Kankakee Public Library Source: The Right NOT to Read , She Said/He Said: Kanakee Public Library Blog on May 8, 2007

This is a Library, Not an Arcade… “ WHY? For the love of dear old Melvil Dewey, why would we take our hallowed houses of learning and sully them with these vile, prurient, mind-rotting entertainments?” — Eli Neiburger, forthcoming book about gaming in libraries Source: Jenny Levine’s “Gaming in the Library” SirsiDynix Presentation on Mar 13, 2007

… and Other Entirely Artificial Distinctions “ Well, it’s a fair question, so long as you remember that they were saying exactly the same thing about Pride and Prejudice not that long ago. Minus the Dewey part, of course.” — Eli Neiburger, forthcoming book about gaming in libraries Source: Jenny Levine’s “Gaming in the Library” SirsiDynix Presentation on Mar 13, 2007

Are We Listening? “ About one-half of the participants in the younger groups identified video games as a source of entertainment. Those who played said that they would usually either rent a game or buy it, although both of these were perceived to be expensive.” Source: Perceptions of Idaho’s Digital Natives on Public Library prepared for Idaho Commission for Libraries; August 2007

Who Is Today’s Gamer? You Have No Idea “ Can you guess who's at the control of this video-game screen? If you said a teenager, you're only 17% right. In fact, it could be a senior citizen or a young kid, a fan of global multiplayer fantasy games, or a sudoku fiend.” — Beth Snyder Bulik Source: Who Is Today’s Gamer? You Have No Idea , Advertising Age on May 14, 2007

fifa coins exchange | 05/02/15
It contains some, silver and bronze money. There exists nothing to be transferred from version to version. If the player plays FIFA 14 Ultimate Team on Xbox 360, the player can transfer everything to Xbox One, conversely. If any player plays FIFA 15 Ultimate Team on PS3, he can transfer everything to PS4, similarly. fifa coins exchange http://www.efifacoins.co.uk
