This post almost became “Eek! I hit an itty bitty baby boar!” At first I thought it was a small dog or cat running across the street. It was very cute and very young which makes me think Mama Boar isn’t too far behind.
But I digress…
Soooo…ten kudos points to anyone who can tell me what sport the title refers to!
*pause for speculation*
That’s right! It is baseball month. My son plays t-ball and is very excited, well sometimes. I mean he is only 5 and so is his attention span. Right now if you head over to AtYourLibrary.org you can play Step up to the Plate @your library and be entered for a chance to win tickets to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. All ages can play and if your library doesn’t participate, just send me a note and I will let you know of one that does. 😉
April is also full of other great events that can be used to promote libraries. For example:
- Hop to Your Library- story time about bunnies.
- Earth Day Birthday- throw a birthday party for the earth with recycled crafts and earth friendly tales
- El Dia de los Ninos/El Dia de los Libros (Children’s Book Day!) April 30th
- National Library Week April 10th-16th
With libraries everybody wins! Great books, friendly people, community, fun, and yes, sometimes even cookies!
What are some of your favorite library events?
