Ten Passive Library Programs for Tweens

Kids ages 8 to 12 are often too busy with scheduled activities of their own to make it to library programs in the afternoons or evenings. For librarians who wish to increase attendance at programs for this age group, this can be very frustrating, but it also opens up an opportunity to offer passive programming.

So after much searching, I found a great template…

Do you want to build a snowman? A snowy day story walk

Our current storywalk is the most popular yet! The Snowy Day is one of my all time favorite books, and one that I read to almost every kid under the age of 5 in town in December.
