Throughout the year, Launa's Little Library holds Special Events that allow the library families to come together to celebrate the Library and enjoy a spirit of community. Mentioned below are some of the fun events we have held in recent years.
Memorial Day Madness:
Parade & Fund-Raising Festival
Our annual Parade & Fund-Raising Festival is our biggest event of the year. Starting off with a color guard, bike brigade, decorated vehicles and balloons, we parade down the street to the fun-filled Festival -- hot dogs, cake walk, face-painting, train rides, bounce houses, relay races -- the works! Everyone joins in to make this a happy celebration, and a tangible display of love and support for Mrs. K.
Teddy Bear Picnic
The Teddy Bear Picnic is a fun and happy time in mid-July, and much more comfortable since we started holding it indoors! The festivities include a bring-your-own picnic lunch, the traditional Teddy Bear March, a Teddy Bear awards presentation, and to round things out, a story time with Mrs. K. For the past two years, we have added a bake sale -- a delicious addition to the festivities, with all proceeds going to the Library. NOTE: The Teddy Bear Picnic for 2012 has been cancelled.
Everyone looks forward to the Pajama Parties, which are evening story times with bedtime books and songs, held on selected Friday evenings in August. All the children come in their pajamas, and it's the perfect way to finish off a late summer evening. This is a good event for bringing along your daddies or grandparents, since there's usually a lot of cuddling and snuggling. NOTE: The Pajama Parties for 2012 have been cancelled.
Summer Reading Club
The Summer Reading Club is our way to motivate the children to keep reading throughout the summer months. Every year, a new and exciting theme offers incentives and prizes for those who complete their reading charts.
This summer, 418 kids joined our "Reading Wranglers Club." The Triple "L" Ranch wall mural is covered with hundreds of horses and riders, and the Wrangler's Trail Ride, for those who have read (or listened to) 20 books, is winding around the walls of the Library. Readers also earn a toy horse, and a Wrangler's Badge charm for their book bag. (The picture shows the castle mural we built, brick by brick, during our Summer Reading Club in 2009.)
