Celebrating National Library Week

How did you celebrate National Library Week at your Library? Did you offer a special storytime celebrating books and reading? Did you offer a photo opp with a special library prop or puppet? Did you have a fun library-related trivia game? Did you have a patron appreciation day?

At our library, Jeffrey Krull, the library director, helped make National Library Week very special by agreeing to have his likeness made into a bobblehead. A video of “Bobblehead Jeff” traveling around our Library system was created and made available on YouTube.

This video journey was highlighted on our Facebook page and through our blogs.

Later in the week, Bobblehead Jeff visited several branches, highlighting some specific aspects of our Library system.

It was all in good fun, and was very well received by customers and staff alike.

    We celebrated with an “I Love My Library” photobooth and it turned out amazing! Check it out ow.ly/ahE8y & ow.ly/ahE9v.

  2. For kids, we had Woody’s Reading Round-up (complete with petting zoo although the live music didn’t show up) which replaced Messy Art Club. About 200 people came, in addition to the 40 attendance avg of our usual programs – four storytimes, Elephant and Piggie Kids’ Club, and Preschool Interactive. For adults and families, we had cookies and coffee one day, author visit, rare book appraisal, bug id program, and a family movie showing. We also have Culver’s Coloring Contest, where kids can draw a picture of their favorite book and get a coupon for a scoop of custard.

    Next year, I’m liking the bobblehead idea!
