Halfway through...

How are everyone's Summer Reading Clubs going?

My summer's been crazy, to be completely honest. I really hit the ground running, starting my new job in mid-May just a week before our SRC started.

We're doing Be Creative @ Your Library, like many other libraries across the country. One of the easiest and most fun things we've done is to provide paper and crayons and encourage kids to draw a picture to put up on the wall. We started out with a big, blank bulletin board but that was soon filled and we moved on to letting kids tape up drawings. Some of them have been really beautiful and it really encourages them to be creative. Plus, it gives the kids an activity to do while they're at the library.

I'm so happy to see so many kids signing up for Summer Reading (and so many kids reading SO MANY book!), but I'll confess that I'm glad we're about halfway through. ;)

So, how is your SRC going? Anyone want to brag about a fantastic program they've done this summer? Or something cheap and easy that's really added to the fun?
