Paw Patrol Party in Chippewa Falls

Thanks to Jenna from Chippewa Falls for this guest post!

Chippewa Falls Public Library hosted a Paw Patrol Party, where over 150 children and adults participated in activities inspired by the hit TV show. It was a barktacular time and proved that CFPL staff really know how to put their best paw forward. Evening programs are often attended less than day programs, but the popularity of the TV show brought families out of their doghouses and to the library. The program began with a short storytime followed by different stations. Stations included:
-Make your own Paw Patrol badge
-Adopt-a-dog (color in a picture of a dog and name it)
-Make and fly Skye's helicopter (helicopter made out of paper and an egg carton - helicopters could then be launched from the stairs down to a helipad)
-Feed the dogs (toss printed dog bones into food dishes)
-a photo booth complete with masks of the Paw Patrol characters and dog stuffed animals and puppets
-Help Marshall put out a fire (toss blue bean bags through the "windows")

Staff had to be quick on their feet and not let it be a fur-raising experience. Families kept showing up and showing up, largely surpassing the expected attendance. It sure pays off to plan ahead and to keep extra supplies on hand just in case the unexpected happens. New-to-the-library families came, got library cards, and plan to attend future programs. Jenna even witnessed old friends reconnecting and introducing their children to one another, proving once again the power of the library space.

"Whenever you're in trouble, yelp for help"...or go to the library!
