Assuming you have some paper, staplers, a printer, and markers on hand, you won’t need to buy a thing.
- White paper cut into 2″ x 11″ strips
- Markers or crayons
- A sign (optional)
Room set up: This is a perfect outreach event activity, minimal prep, minimal mess and a fun visual statement. We took this to a booth at a community art fair last month. It would also work well as a tabletop activity in your youth services area. If you wanted to make it a program, you just need to set up tables and chairs.
Quite simply, staff invited community members passing by the booth to stop and decorate a paper strip with markers. The strips were then added to the paper chain hanging from our booth. After the event, we put the Art Links up on display in the library for everyone to enjoy.
