I have been thinking that I would like to have a “Family Library / Reading (listening, viewing) Club” during the Winter. We had a “Children’s Summer
Reading Club” for the Children this past year, but I thought it would be nice
and also another good way to get more people to come in and use the Library. I
am thinking that I probably need 2 categories: one for couples (whose children
are grown) and another for families with (young) children at home. I think it
would run about 4 (maybe 5) weeks during February. I would like any and all suggestions,
plus what would be good “rewards”? My thoughts are that I would like to have Families
read together / share some books (perhaps 3 or 4 & maybe a C or J book
included), plus view 1 or 2 DVDs or VCs together. (My DVD collection is rather
limited right now) or listen to 1 or 2 ACs. (My CD collection is mostly music -
which would work as well if they listened to it as a family)
I know this is a good place to get suggestions and I look forward to some good ideas. Thanks in advance for all your help!
We're having a family game night during the winter months. We purchased several bible-oriented board games and make them available for checkout. Families have another option (besides sitting in front of a screen) for quality time. I prepare a list of related books (trivia, missions-oriented, etc.) to go along with the games "for further study." For every game the family plays, the family earns a point; late return of the item and they lose a point. For each earned point,the family's name is put into a hat for a drawing for a gift card or we present a brand new game.
