Every Saturday, we offer an afternoon program for families at my library. Usually, it’s a family storytime provided by one of my coworkers, but once a month we give her a break and another staff person does a different program designed to encourage families to read together. All you need to do is share a book together (or read your own books while sitting together) and you are granted admission into our program room where board games & snacks are set up. Chinese checkers! Monopoly! Sorry! Goldfish crackers! Mancala! Fruit punch! UNO!
This Saturday it was my turn to cover this program and I ended up having quite a large group. A number of sibling groups stopped by, as well as some parents with children. We had all ages from 2 months old through teens.
