Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library
Here’s the very special (non-) Thanksgiving edition of Thrive Thursday!
What would you do if you inherited a Youth Writer’s Group in your new library position?! Miss Meg gives you some ideas to start your own writer’s club with the tween age, complete with handouts ready to be copied! I hope she shares more ideas in the future.
Last week In Short, I am Busy shared two great after school programs and this week she topped them both! How would you keep 35 tweens busy for an hour? You just need some school supplies, a ladder, and a step stool. Intrigued? Well you better check it out here with the Mad Scientist’s Flight Club!
If you’re looking for a creative passive programming for the busy month filled with holidays, try the Shredded Book. I’m jealous I didn’t think of it myself!
I am sharing another Book vs. Movie. This time with my ogre friend, Shrek. This ready-to-go program is perfect for a big school aged crowd.
And, if you’re unsure about school aged programming, check out the first in a series of Unprogramming: Recipes for School Age Success by power librarians Marge Loch-Wouters and Amy Koester. Their list is thought provoking!
