Thrive After Three

Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library

Thrive Thursday Placeholder 2/6/14

Thrive Thursday Logo

If you have a program for the after school age crowd that you would like to share, leave a link to your blog in the comments section and I’ll post a compilation on the first Thursday of the month. (I changed the roundup to publish monthly so we wouldn’t get worn out with typing up our programs. And, so we still have a chance to participate in Flannel Friday and Saturday Share without getting burnt out!)

To check out past roundups, click here. For more information check out the Pinterest board and newly formed Facebook Group.

If you need me to host you or have any questions, email me at

Here’s the upcoming schedule of hosts:

February 6:

March 6:

April 3:

May 1:

June 5:

July 3:

I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Thriving!

    I just wanted to say that I am a little sad to see Thrive Thursday go monthly but I totally understand your reasons. I love this round-up! I feel like it is a much-needed resource so I look forward to continuing to follow and contribute when I can. Since I am just getting back into doing school-age programs on a more regular basis, I need all the help and encouragement that I can get. Thank you so much for providing a place for me and others to find both.

    I will have an American Girl program (Meet Kirsten) to share on Monday and our second Read Your Way to a Party to share on Thursday. Is it alright to contribute multiple posts each month?

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Btw, thank you for mentioning and linking to Storytimes and More Saturday Share. I appreciate your support! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help support you and Thrive Thursday. :o)

      Thanks for your kind words, Kay Leigh!!

      Yes, please submit multiple programs. I thought switching it to monthly would produce more entries and give people time to write about them. I also have a schedule of bloggers who will be hosting (soon to come) =). (Let me know if you’d like to host.)

      If it catches on and we’re getting tons of submissions each month (fingers crossed), I’ll go back to weekly.

      Thanks, and I’ll submit for this coming Saturday. Enjoy your Sunday.

        Yes! I would love to be a host! Anything I can do to help you promote the site and the round-up I will do. Just let me know what you need help with. :o)

    I do a monthly “passive program” for school age children because we do not have the budget or manpower to consistently do programs for them. This month we are celebrating and learning more about the Winter Olympics! Here is a link to the post.
    My other passive programs can be found under the label of DIY Station

    I’ll add one more if I may – this is our Mad Scientists Club: What floats your boat? I had expected it to appeal mostly to younger children, and they certainly enjoyed it, but I had a lot of very enthusiastic school-age children as well (who knew you could make engines out of straws?)
