Kids in grades 3–5 with Minecraft accounts invited
Minecraft fans are invited to the Butterfield Library after hours on Friday, Jan. 9, to see it transformed into a Minecraft world where they can battle friends and enjoy some snacks.
The program starts at 5:30 p.m. and runs until 7 p.m. This is a drop-off event for Philipstown students in grades 3 through 5. Important: Participants need a registered Minecraft account to compete and should bring their own devices with Wi-Fi connection.
The library will have a limited number of devices available for use, but they may have to be shared. Pre-registration is required. No walk-ins/drop-ins will be permitted. Children must be picked up promptly at the end of the program.
Minecraft is an open-ended, exploration and creation-focused video game. Players can create items and buildings from scratch using materials they can harvest from the world around them. Once night falls, creatures come out and must be fought off with swords and bows. There isn’t any gore, however. Players can interact with each other through private, non-moderated servers, although it is not necessary to engage online to enjoy the game.
