8 years ago, there was a YouTube video about Caine's Arcade. Remember that? Ever since then, I've wanted to host an arcade program at the library, using all our delivery boxes and regular office supplies.
All these years, I was never able to make that happen at the library, but working from home with a bored child created the perfect situation to finally make this dream a reality.
