Tween Time & Wii Wednesdays

Tween Time & Wii Wednesdays

Every Wednesday, from 2-3 was Tween Time and from 3-4 was Tween Wii Wednesday.  I planned the majority of the Tween Time activities and my co-worker LT (not LA, it’s all very confusing) handled the Wii situation.  For the most part, we worked Tween Time together because by the end of the summer we were … Continue reading

Fun Food Fridays

Fun Food Fridays

Every week, my Library Assistant (I’m just going to call her LA — she doesn’t like her name out on the internet and I’m too lazy to type out descriptions for the rest of these posts) and I alternated on some kind of food-related activity.  Each Fun Food Friday started out with a story and … Continue reading

Semi-Passive Programming

Semi-Passive Programming

As I mentioned in my last post on Passive Programming (aka programming which requires little to no attention during the program or preparation), we hit a snag when we planned our scavenger hunts.  Our scavenger hunts alternated with our Passive Challenges, but they turned out to be a little more work than we planned.  My … Continue reading

SRP @ GPL

SRP @ GPL

These signs started off with the idea from Burma Shave ads from back in the day but evolved into something a little less… Burma Shavey.  Fun none the less! Thanks to our Library Assistant for the idea and the awesome signs. This one was my favorite of hers, but I don’t think it made the … Continue reading

MY SRP

So I’ll admit it.  I’m lazy.  And sometimes its easier to watch the boob tube instead of read.  So, I’m taking on my own SRP for myself.  MY goal is to read for at least 30 min or 30 pages each day this summer (whichever comes first since everyday is different and every book is … Continue reading

SRP Mania

Ah June.  The best month ever.  My birthday, the first day of summer – what more can you ask for?  This June is going to be pretty bad ass.  I’m heading to Vegas for my first ever girls weekend in 2 days and then at the end of the month, 2 days after my birthday, … Continue reading
