The main thing about Ingress that strikes me is how much of a community we have developed. It’s an amazing group of people from all walks of life and we all come together due to a mere random game we downloaded (or had already downloaded) to our phones. We’re kind of like a living library if you think about it – so much skill and knowledge and ability wrapped up in an awesome team. We do things with and for our team, much more than just playing this game; from celebrating birthdays, to supporting families in need, to going out to see agent’s bands play, to karaoke nights and more…
And sometimes we don’t want to go out in the world and explore, or maybe we want to have some quiet time in and amongst all the exploration we’ve been doing. So with that, I bring you some local library options.
