Brian Mayer

Gaming and Library Technology Specialist in Perry, NY

Read my book

I am a Gaming & Library Technology Specialist for the Genesee Valley Educational Partnership as well as an Independent Library Consultant. The focus of my work is on the exploration and use of non-digital games and game design in schools, libraries and the classroom as a way to engage students, build literacy, strengthen social skills and reinforce the curriculum.

I am the designer of the award winning historical game: "Freedom: The Underground Railroad" and am co-author of the book: “Libraries Got Game: Aligned Learning through Modern Board Games” from ALA Editions. My work in developing a nationally recognized model for games as resources is available for viewing at the Genesee Valley School Library System's Game Library.

Please feel free to conact me regarding workshops or programs.
