A new generation of consoles is upon us, along with a hefty price tag that comes with the newest and coolest products. However, if you already own a console from the previous generation (XBox 360, PS3) then there's a free alternative at your local library. The Burlington County Library System has an impressive collection of games to choose from, all of which are free to check out for 7 days and renewable if they are not requested by someone else. While some of the games of the previous generation may have lost their cachet, they are still just as good as they ever were and are free to borrow!

Note: Some of the games pictured below may also be available on another console

Note: The library also owns Xbox One, PS4, Wii, Wii U, DS, and 3DS games.
