Create your own Story @ your library

Happy National Library Week!

It's our favorite week of the year, when we celebrate the library and all it does for our community. We decided to celebrate by having activities and dress up days all week. Kids and adults could find a book worm hidden on the shelves this week and turn it in for a small prize. We also had a scavenger hunt activity and a Bookmark guessing game, "How many are in the jar?"

The national theme for the week is "Create your own story @ the Library. We had themes for each day, Monday the staff wore hats for "Hats Off" to a good book day, Tuesday we dressed up as Geniuses/Nerds, Wednesday we wore our gardening outfits and had Green Thumb day. On Thursday we wore our aprons and passed out cookies for Magic Chef day and Friday will be Animal Safari day. Each day of the week we displayed parts of our collection that went along with the theme for the day. Monday we spotlighted classics and award winners. Tuesday we spotlighted our ...for Dummies books and How-to books. Gardening books were featured for our Green Thumb day and on Friday our selection of animal books were the highlight of the display.

Finally on Saturday, we will celebrate Witches & Wizards day with a performance by magician Christopher Fair. He will begin his show at 2:00 p.m. and it is free and open to everyone! Dress up as a witch or wizard and you could win a special prize too.

Michele, Children's Librarian
