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).

SLP Promotion in Ellsworth is Golden

Julie (mean banker Mr. Bigglebottom, above) adapted the new book: The Gold Miner's Daughter, A Melodramatic Fairy Tale written by Jackie Mims Hopkins into a play for the library staff (and a few volunteers) to perform for students to promote the Summer Library Program in Ellsworth.  Nineteen classes of students come to the library to hear about the SLP and get treated to a fabulous, book-based play.  The kids had a chance to participate (booing, hissing, cheering, etc), and they loved it!  The staff has a chance to ham it up, play multiple characters, and promote books, reading and the library.  They love it too, though they are pretty wiped out by the end of the school visits!
