Family Water Fun Day!

Last Wednesday, Mrs. Ryan and I put together our first-ever summer fundraiser, called Family Water Fun Day. We were assisted by library staff and a small army of teen volunteers, and it was definitely a success! Since the summer reading theme was Make a Splash, it wasn't hard to come up with a lot of creative and inexpensive water-themed stations for families to enjoy. We had all kinds of activities: water science, a fish pond, crafts, face painting, games, and (of course) snacks. But the best station was obviously Soak the Librarian! Mrs. Ryan and I were drenched from head to toe 292 times, according to the number of tickets collected. Altogether, we raised over $400 to help with our fall programs for kids and teens.

Some of the signs for the stations.
