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).

Thanks to Alisha from the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library for this guest post!

In the photo booth
 Happy New Year!  The Eau Claire library celebrated with a New Year’s Rockin’ Early Eve party on December 31 from 4-5 p.m.  Families enjoyed crafts, games, light refreshments, a photo booth, and a dance party complete with disco lights.  The party ended with a countdown to 5:00, an upbeat rendition of Auld Lang Syne and a special ball drop.  Each child received a kiss (a Hershey’s Chocolate Kiss, that is) and a glass of sparkling grape juice for a “midnight” toast.
Kids made their own party supplies

This was our first New Year’s Eve program and we had no idea what to expect, but we had an attendance of almost 150.  Success!  One unexpected highlight of the event was the excited response and draw to the dance floor for “What Does the Fox Say?”   I had no idea how many kids know every single word to that song!  Those in attendance had a lot of fun and parents were very appreciative for this early family event that they could enjoy together to ring in the new year.
