Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Rice Lake's Readapalooza!

This just in from Dawn at Rice Lake:

"We just had our 2nd annual Readapalooza Summer Reading Kickoff Festival. We had a dunk tank, bounce castle, free hot dogs, cotton candy, snow-cones and games. Brown’s Karate, Barron County Sparks and the Unicycling club all performed demonstrations and we received donations from Louie’s Meats and Viking Coca-Cola. We clicked over 730 people coming to get the free food tickets (which was the best way we had of counting) and had over 900 come through the door that day. It was a huge success, not least because everyone on staff helped and participated. "

Winding up for the dunk-a-librarian tank...

What kinds of extravaganzas are you planning? What's working? What's not?
