Georgia from New Richmond sent in this dreamy description of the summer transformation at the library:
"We decided to decorate using a dreamy nighttime theme this summer. Decorating for the summer program can be challenging, depending on the theme. When I heard the "Dream Big" theme it just took me to the dreamy night idea, possibly because I seem to be tired most of the time anyway! So we ordered gossamer (love that word) in Indigo (love that word,too) from Stumps Party Supply and draped it as a night sky. We added some moons and stars, a few twinkle lights, some puffy clouds, and the scene was set. When children came down the hallway to the Children's Room they were ooooing and ahhhing and we knew we had accomplished our mission.
When the reading program is over we can pack everything away and repurpose it for another program.
(Note: Georgia said the summer has been unusually great with lots of interactions with kids in the stacks. I wonder if the calmer, dreamier atmosphere helped?)
