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).

Nighty-Night in Osceola

Flashlights, stories, and bed-time fun in Osceola
Thanks for this guest post from Rebekah Palmer from Osceola.  Send in your guest posts--plenty of interesting prizes left!

We always have a blast at our monthly Nighty Night Time for preschoolers and their families, reading stories, singing, rhyming, playing with our flashlights and blowing bubbles! Children (and adults, if they choose) can wear their jammies and snuggle up in a blanky with their favorite stuffed animal. Last month, we had a great time making constellation shadows on the ceiling!
