Deep Freeze

We are so fortunate to have an awesome intern this summer in our Youth Services Department! Misty has added her talent, experience, enthusiasm, and extensive knowledge of all things Disney, Marvel, and beyond. Turns out that Misty is a member of Daikon Cosplay, a group that models, acts, costumes, and participates in Cosplay events.
She is passionate about this fun part of her life and is thrilled to share her characters with children and adults. The costumes are made by hand and are beautiful. Lots of time and talent, not to mention creativity and expense, go into creating these costumes.

Look who came to the library yesterday!

Anna and Elsa shared stories and photo ops with 155 people and then proceeded to walk around the library and then have lunch (in costume) at DQ. Lots of happy kids!

Fairies will be coming to visit the library in August and Ariel will be coming in September. Character events go over really well at our library and the books that are related fly off the shelves. It is an affordable program that promotes books and has crowd appeal.

Pop Up Library in the Park

Today Youth Services took some library fun to the park in New Richmond. Jessi, my assistant in Youth Services, and Misty, our summer intern, took chalk, books, and their creative and fun loving selves to Mary Park. They started at one end of the sidewalk path and used chalk to draw activities to do along the way. It ended with a suggestion to have an adult take you to the library. I thought this was so clever!

They shared stories with lots of families who were at the park and told them about the events we have coming up at the library. The weather was perfect and it was a fun way to make the library visible to people who may not have been to the library or are not aware of the events.
