ALA Annual Conference Wrap Up

Greetings!

We are back in the office today after spending a very fun weekend in Orlando exhibiting our giant games, GIANT Word Winder and GIANT Math Winder, at the 2016 American Library Association Annual Conference! ALAAC16 attendees met our game with excitement and enthusiasm! This has us excited about our goal to get this game into every library and every school in the country!

We started our weekend with ALAPlay on Friday night. We played both GIANT Word Winder and GIANT Math Winder with attendees. Also, we donated Word Winder board games and David’s new card game, 8*28, to the ALAPlay raffle.

While at ALAAC16, we met school librarians looking for ways to activate their space. We met children services librarians excited about the possibilities of adding GIANT Word Winder and GIANT Math Winder to their summer and after school programming. We met teachers who could see all of the ways the these two games could be used in their classrooms. We met students who came back again and again to play the game on the exhibit floor. We met Jumble fans who received signed Jumble books from David L. Hoyt, author of the Jumble and inventor of the GIANT Word Winder and GIANT Math Winder. And, we met so many other people who were excited about our games.

We held a raffle to WIN a GIANT Word Winder, and selected a random WINNER. Congratulations to Tracy Phillips of the Palm Beach County Library System in Lake Worth Florida! We are very excited for you! And, we cannot wait to get you your game! Congratulate Tracy if you know her, because this is a BIG win for her and the Lantana Branch Library! Her patrons are going to LOVE playing GIANT Word Winder!
