They have books, magazines and movies. Why not video games? The likes of 'Super Mario' and 'Megamania' will soon be available at the Windsor Public Library in an effort to attract new users. Library CEO, Barry Holmes, says making video games available has worked well in other centres. They'll be available at the Central and Riverside branches as of April 1st.

I have a feeling this wont last too long. The movies are always so scratch up etc.. I think damage done to the games will have them changing their minds fairly quick. We shall see. Cool idea, though!

I would support the idea - only based on what type of games they have.... if they're at least "learning" type games.. sure - the library should have those.... but if they're just what's popular at the time, or anything rated higher than pg13 - won't support that...
