Bowling at the 'Brary
- In the Youth Wing of the library, Amy Lynn raises her hand to pull an on-screen bowling ball. She leans back and swings in for what looks like a sure strike – but a solitary pin remains standing on the large, wall-mounted screen.
- “She got robbed on that one,” says Robby Marsh.
- “Sure did,” agrees Delford Hill.
- “You’ll get it,” says Steve Whisenand.
- On her next roll, Amy knocks down the last pin for a spare, her friends cheer and she dances in victory while the xBox plays “Party Like It’s 1999.”
- Twice a week clients from Community Entry Services (CES), which empowers people with disabilities to lead independent, satisfying and productive lives, bowl with library staffer Steve Whisenand on an xBox Kinect or Wii game device.
