Three Kentucky libraries to check out video games.

Never heard of libraries doing this, but....

"Kentucky library checking out games.

Libraries are taking the first step to becoming cool. A three-branch public library in Kentucky will add games to its stacks of books and microfiches this month, reports Kentucky's Community Recorder.

Each of the Campbell County Public Library's three branches will carry games for different systems within the next few months. The Fort Thomas branch will host Xbox 360 games, the Newport branch will carry Wii games, and the Cold Spring branch will be stocked with PlayStation 2 games, says the newspaper.

The collection will lead off with about 50 family-friendly titles, such as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2007 and Kingdom Hearts II.

However, don't expect to pick up any of the Grand Theft Auto games at the book barns. "We won't be collecting the violent games with the harsh language," said Dave Anderson, manager of the Cold Spring branch."

In ten years:

"Kentucky libraries don't understand why no one takes out their PS2 video games."

i hope this does bring more bodies into any library.   those bodies might only be there to rip off the library for a $50-60 game, but it's worth a shot.
