The games libraries provide families with a place where they can play and borrow games. They also help create social ties.

Children discover or rediscover game rules and behavioural rules which will serve them throughout their life.

To encourage social cohesion, the City of Geneva actively supports the associations of games libraries. It provides them with premises and funds their operations. By doing so, the City supports the commitment of all the games librarians.

Summer activities

Throughout the summer, the games libraries of Eaux-Vives, Plainpalais-Jonction, Pré-Picot, Prêt-Ludes, Saint-Jean, 1-2-3...Planète and Sécheron organise activities in the local parks and school yards. More info on the page of each games library.

Association genevoise des ludothèques

The Association genevoise des ludothèques (AGL) is the umbrella organisation for the games libraries throughout the region of Geneva. It encourages the games libraries to share experiences and information.
