Level-Up Lab: How to use Minecraft @ Your Library
Tuesday, April 4th @ 2 PM - 4 PM
Clara has run a successful Minecraft Club for two years at her library branch, and has worked out all the kinks in keeping it running smoothly. She also has run a server that the teens can access off site to play the game in partnership with Creeperhost.net for the last two years. If you were thinking about running a Minecraft club but didn’t know where to begin, what technology is needed, or even how to play the game, this is a great place to start.
What is Minecraft?
Minecraft is a popular game with children through teens. Minecraft is available on computers, tablets, and gaming consoles. It can be played in a few different ways from adventure mode to creative mode. Minecraft players can fight monsters, build virtual computers, or design cool structures, such as roller coasters, all within Minecraft.

Do I need to bring a laptop or purchase a Minecraft Account?
You do not need to bring a laptop, and it is suggested that you use the laptop provided for you. You do not need to purchase a Minecraft Account. The Campbell County Public Library has library accounts for Minecraft, and we will be using that for the demonstrations and instruction of this lab.
