“We know that our customers are avid media consumers,” Emily Mathews, VIRL’s divisional manager of collections and support services, said in the press release. “Video games are wildly popular in our communities, particularly with Millennials and Generation Xers, and it is vital that we provide library content to complement their interests and passions. We are so excited to be offering this service.”
