Section 1 covers planning and promoting programs, and includes reproducible promotional materials, sample letters to parents, and sample media materials. Section 2 provides decorating and display ideas for the library and name tag designs. Section 3 provides programs and activities. It recommends general resource materials; talks about surfing the Internet; provides poetry, stories, and plays to perform; outlines storytime programs; and describes water-related activities and crafts. The majority of programs are aimed at young children. Section 4 provides giveaways and games, including clip art, puzzles and word games, mazes and coloring pages, and answer keys. Section 5 lists Wisconsin performing artists with a description of their performance type and contact information. Section 6 contains sources and resources, including resources for people who have hearing loss and/or visual disabilities and catalogs of companies that provide additional sources of materials and prizes.
