Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library

Thrive Thursday Roundup 11/21/13

Here’s the roundup for Thrive Thursday for November 21, 2013:

emergency program

Marge at Tiny Tips for Library Fun wrote up her program called Emergency! She chronicled how she came up with a last-minute program to cover for a sick co-worker. I’m going to be adding this to my “Just in Case” folder!

lego ramp

A lot of us offer Lego programs for the school age. Youth Services Shout Out offers two ideas to spice up your program. You can borrow a Boy Scout pinewood derby ramp and have a racing contest. Or, if you have room to display masterpieces you can have a contest. Check out the details!

Messy Art Club

I’ll be adding this to my 2014 Summer Reading Program: the Mad Scientist’s Club. This week’s post offers an idea for experimenting with color. You probably already have the supplies to run this program. I just need to find some eye droppers!

Mad Scientist Collage

In Short, I’m Busy also offers a Messy Art Club idea that’s all about collages. This is a great way to use all of those craft supplies you’re not sure what to do with!


MCLS Kids has a bunch of Junie B. Jones ideas to commemorate Barbara Park’s life.

Book vs Movie Jumanji

I created a Book vs. Movie game featuring Jumanji. This is the first in a series, so keep your eyes out for more!

Participate with your very own after school program! For more information visit
