What does an Xbox tournament have to do with the library???

Here's how it is. The library is not just about books. It's about reading, yes, but we know that you read a lot when you're on the computer... we know that you read magazines and cereal boxes and all kinds of things that aren't books.

And the library is about fun.

So, that's where the Halo 2 Tournament comes in. It's happening next Saturday after the library is closed and if you talk to Lucas, there might be a spot on the waiting list for you... It's full, but there's always someone who doesn't show. And, if you win, you're likely to get a prize that has to do with reading...

That's what an X box tournament has to do with the library.
