Sady MacKinnon participated in the 2018 Games @ the Library week and won the grand prize package of a Samsung Galaxy Tab E Lite! Games @ the Library was held the week of October 21 – 27, 2018 and was sponsored by the Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA). Anytime that week, APLA encouraged all libraries in Atlantic Canada to host a "game themed" event of their choice (board games, chess, trivia, scavenger hunts, video games, etc.). Events could be geared towards specific age groups or the whole community. The goal was to show that libraries are places where people meet, learn, and have fun!

All participants during Games @ the Library week were eligible to enter their names in the grand prize draw which took place on November 21, 2018. A total of 460 ballots were received from 31 different libraries with a total of 451 participants. One grand prize was awarded for all of Atlantic Canada.
