We have been doing A LOT of outreach. Visiting different sites has been a fun way to tweak our programs and look with fresh eyes at how we might better serve particular needs. One of the new sites we were invited to was the airport! They offered a free movie (Planes2) and wanted us to provide some library-esque activities/entertainment/ kid control. The hanger has a large movie screen, projector, lots of chairs, tables, a popcorn machine, lots of Oriental Trading swag....who knew???
There were books, of course, and there was chalk to draw roads and runways for the wood building and vehicles we brought.
The turnout was smaller than expected, but it was right after Christmas and there was a snowfall. It was a great opportunity to partner with the airport and we are planning another event soon.
Happiest of New Years!
