Library Games people can play

Turn the library into a game board by making up games for your children, youth group or your classroom.
Make up a Scavenger Hunt giving a clue that can be used to lead to a certain book, author or subject.
Make a Match Game using the titles by an author who has written primarily adult fiction but has also written a children, juvenile or young adult book. See if your favorite author has written for kids and grownups. Make sure you have three columns: 1) author, 2) adult title and 3) kids title. To get you started look up http://iii.ocls.info/ Jan Karon, Mary Higgins Clark, Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson or Carl Hiaasen. This might encourage a love for your style of reading.

Go to Armoredpenguin.com site and make your own Word Search. Make a list of famous people who have written for kids such as Madonna, Henry Winkler, Billy Crystal, Sarah Ferguson and John Lithgow. Check out Wikipedia.org and look up Celebrity Authors. After the names have been found in the word search the next step would be to look up the title or see if it is currently on the shelf. For younger kids just do a word search of one word book titles.

Just exploring the libraries sources will be a game for you as you create fun for the young. Also check out the books on parties located at 793.2 & 793.21 while you are visiting us in person or on line. We have books for baby showers, bridal shower, birthday parties, family gatherings and more.
