"Sportacular Summer." 1995 Summer Library Program Manual. Bulletin No. 95218.
Roeber, Jane A., Ed.
This manual was assembled to help Wisconsin librarians plan summer children's programming based on the theme "Sportacular Summer." Ideas in the manual were submitted by more than 45 Wisconsin librarians and gleaned from similar manuals in 5 other states. All materials have been designed to reflect a spirit of fun and to encourage delight in recreational reading. Part 1, "Planning and Promoting Programs," examines generalized fundamentals of planning, promoting, and evaluating programs. Part 2, "Decorating the Library," offers tips for decorating and display ideas and for creating thematic bulletin boards and name tags. Part 3, "Programs and Activities," outlines suggestions for the actual "Summer Sportacular" programs, including guest speaker possibilities, games and activities, sample programs, booklists and audiovisual recommendations, craft ideas, and a sample skit. Part 4, "Giveaways and Games," contains theme-related clip art, puzzles, word games, mazes, coloring pages, and answer keys. Part 5, "Performing Artists," contains a directory of performers from around the state and a performer evaluation form. Part 6, "Sources and Resources," contains lists of professional reading and resources for the hearing and visually impaired, catalogs and other resources. (BEW)
