Middle-Schoolers Get Old-School With Games
Old can be new again, at least for kids in grades 6-8 who attend the Southern Pines Public Library's Old School Game Night.
The event will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12.
The library raided its stockpile of old systems and games, and has many offerings for daring students who want to try something out of the ordinary.
Included in the list is the Atari 2600, with the option to play River Raid, Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Asteroids, and a Super NES with Mario Brothers and Lemmings.
The library can also break out the Wii, which is not as old, but just as fun.
And for kids who really want to go old school, the library's collection of board games may fill that classic craving.
Along with playing games, pizza and drinks are provided.
Kelley Loftis, a library staff member who excels at gaming, says, "If you are in middle school, head to the library to take the challenge and put your gaming skills to the test on some vintage games while munching on hot and delicious pizza!"
