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).

Warming Up Winter

As a response to a recent question on our youth services staff listserv, we got a few great ideas:

"At Rice Lake Public Library we have a Mid-Winter reading Challenge.   During the month of January children can pick up a reading log.   If they read 25 books, chapters, or articles during the month of January they can bring the log back for a free book choice (we stocked up on Scholastic books at the warehouse sale).   Each child who completes the log also gets to put their name in a drawing for one of three Family Fun Packs.    Our family fun packs have things like a DVD, game, craft supplies, snacks, etc." (From Heidi W.)

"The Hawkins Library has a "Take the Chill Out with a Good Book" promotion which runs the entire month of January. After checking out books, children preschool-16, may pick a scarf, hat or mittens from our snowflake tree, they also receive a pack of hot chocolate mix. They may receive one item per week.
 Adults are entered into a drawing for a warm & fuzzy basket awarded at the end of the month.
Everyone has a lot of fun with this and all items are donated, many are beautiful  handmade items." (From Arlene M.)
