Library of Games (LoG) is a video game journalism program sponsored by YOUmedia Chicago at the Chicago Public Library. LoG is open to all high school students who love video games and want to learn more about games, gaming criticism, and podcast and video production. Students in LoG produce a weekly video game podcast and produce all of the content on the LoG blog including articles, editorials, videos, graphic design and more.
We believe that video games are an incredibly important part of people’s lives, especially teenagers, and we need an open and intelligent forum to discuss games. We want to represent the diversity of teen gamers and prove that teens can speak and write intelligently about video games.
All LoG workshops are conducted at YOUmedia Chicago at the Harold Washington Library Center at the Chicago Public Library. LoG is generously supported by the Chicago Public Library and the MacArthur Foundation.
