Thanks to Sam Carpenter at LEPMPL for sharing this idea for a super-fun passive program! Remember, if you don't have a button-maker, you can borrow one from IFLS, we have 2 tiny button-makers.
To celebrate National Library Week, the youth services staff in Eau Claire put together a button-maker challenge for each day of the week and encouraged people to show their completed buttons to the librarians. Here was their challenge:
Sunday: Do you have a dream? Misty Copeland, ALA's honorary chair for the week, dreamt of being a ballerina. Draw a picture of your dream or use the word "dream" on your button.
Monday: The American Library Association's theme for the week is "Libraries Transform: Libraries Lead." Create your own library slogan or logo.
Tuesday: Honor your favorite book or book character with a picture or a quote.
Thursday: Design a button that honors Earth Day
Friday: Use every color of the rainbow on your button
Saturday: April is National Poetry Month! Use two rhyming words, a haiku (3 lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables), a simile (The library is like...), or a short poem on your button.

Focus on Youth Mental Health: A Free Community Event
Thursday, May 3, 6-7:30 pm
HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital Community Auditorium, Eau Claire
Mental health remains a top health priority in both Chippewa and Eau Claire counties. This free community event will address the growing concerns for our youth in the Chippewa Valley, identify factors that can help protect youth from poor mental health, and provide resources to support youth in overcoming adversity. The evening will begin with an engaging presentation by Angie Weideman (Chippewa Public Health Department) and Brook Berg (UW-Extension). This will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts from the fields of healthcare, human services, and education.
The event is free, but registration is required.
