A gaming library that started as a People's Liberty-funded popup is getting a permanent home in Over-the-Rhine.

Play Library originally opened as a popup in the Globe Gallery across from Findlay Market. It's celebrating its grand opening at 1517 Elm St. in OTR on March 15.

The library is the brainchild of former toy design manager Julia Fischer.

"The popup was so successful, we decided to keep the idea going," she told me. "Our goal is to get families to play together and connect, so we have stuff that appeals to all ages, not just little kid things."

All of the library's games are free to play in its physical location, which is housed in 1,065 square feet. The library has new and classic board and card games but also classic video game systems to allow parents (or nostalgic millennials like myself) to play systems from their youth with their kids.
