Greetings! Our Library offers a 3 day a week after-school program. We run 25-40 children and it is a full-program. We are doing a Countdown to the Census program for the next several months. Ending with a big Census Party on April 1st. Our party on April 1st will of course be celebrating the great state of Idaho. 🙂 Each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between now and then our kids will be learning about other states. Reading books about the state, running the numbers, sometimes eating the food when we can. (After being in Vermont we will certainly have creamies and maple syrup from April’s Maples.) I wanted to throw it out there to see if anyone would want to participate in our fun program. We have a thank-you box with some library swag. Library Swag trade. 🙂 If you have stickers from your Library, local memorabilia, perhaps a book by a local author that we would not likely carry. Perhaps just some super cool travel brochures from your area. It could even be your monthly calendar, newsletter, or even a brochure about your awesome Library. Our kids are going to be having their family post on social media and we are going to try and get something from each state. I would love to have some of you participate. If you want to know when your state is going it is listed on our website. www.donnellylibrary.org We would give your library, business, family shout outs on social media. Include your facebook, instagram, twitter, snapchat, etc… We will show you our treasures. Each child will have a passport and will get stickers, stamps, etc… to fill it up. We also have lanyard name tags for all of them and they love pins. Also if you have extra census swag from your state we would love a poster, stickers, etc… 3 months = 50 states.
We would also love to have you follow our adventures.
We are a little log cabin library in the mountains. Our occupancy is only 16, so our after-school program is outside. Can’t wait until we do Hawaii and have a luau in 5 feet of snow. 🙂 It will be a blast. The kids will love every minute of it. Plus we hope that each week we can spread a little bit more social media awareness for #2020Census.
Here is our address if you should choose to participate. I know it’s a lot to ask, but I promise our kids will give you a lot of love from the mountains of Idaho.
