Story Times @ Your Library
The BurgerFest parade theme for 2019 was “rebirth of the burger”. For the parade float we also decided to include in our design references to our plans for expanding (or rebirthing!) the library. So one panel is about the new life of BurgerFest and one panel is about the new life of the library. The VBS fifth graders assisted us on Wednesday, August 7 under the leadership of John Steltz and Summer Peters. Helpers on Saturday morning, August 10, included Lori, Dan, Ronnie and Jeff and the float riders. (The float riders wore scrubs to go with the idea of rebirthing!) We had pink balloons and a pink stork for the rebirth of the library panel. We had blue balloons and a blue stork for the rebirth of the burger panel. We are tickled to announce that we placed 1st! It is a ton of work, especially with very last minute brainstorming during the busy summer reading season. Validation and recognition makes it so much sweeter. Thank you!
Planetarium Field Trip was a hit!
Thanks to our Friends Treasurer, Deanna DeBruin. When we were in the brainstorming stages of A UNIVERSE OF STORIES she suggested that our incentive for reading should be a field trip to the Barlow. Voila! 55 patrons attended the field trip on the evening of Tuesday, August 20, 2019. (7 not pictured). Many more patrons had earned the trip but were unable to participate due to scheduling conflicts.
Thank you Barlow Planetarium and to the patrons who read all summer to earn the trip there! Thank you to our guide, Ty. I knew we were in good hands when he let me know that he is married to Kathleen, a children's librarian at the Appleton Public Library. Small world and all that!
Everyone keep looking up to the stars and expanding your universe!
