Ms. Pac-Man Co-Creator Applauds Library Use of His Game

One of the co-creators of Ms. Pac-Man reached out to librarian Justin Hoenke, cheering his use of a classic arcade game in the library.

Chattanooga Public Library teen librarian Hoenke installed a Ms. Pac-Man arcade machine in his library, building a sense of community play inside the library. Steve Golson helped create Ms. Pac-Man in the 1980s and wrote this email message to Hoenke:

I just found out about your Ms. Pac-Man at your library. Outstanding idea! I was one of the designers of Ms. Pac-Man. Wow, that was a loooong time ago. Keep up the great work with the teens.
