Creative Programming for Children: An Idea Scrapbook.
Hektoen, Faith H., Ed.
Librarians from all over the country contributed to the compilation of a scrapbook containing a wide variety of ideas which could be integrated into a library program for children. The emphasis is on activities which stress participation by the children; diversity of kinds of programs; use of skilled community resource people; possibilities for the co-sponsoring of activities for children both within and without the library walls, and for working with other community agencies concerned with children; and new kinds of activities, materials, and approaches. Traditional activities such as storytelling, mass summer reading programs, and pre-school storytelling are not emphasized. Ideas for presenting each activity are listed, as is a list of art, audiovisual, and book materials which will be needed. Basic considerations for planning a library program and pitfalls to avoid are noted. (KKC)
