Read Fest 2009

by Laura Wright on April 21, 2009 in Odum Library

On April 17, 2009 approximately 150 Pre-K students from three local schools visited Odum Library for Read Fest 2009, held in honor of National Library Week. Our goal is to promote a life-long love of reading through a variety of fun reading-related activities.

We had read-a-louds

Some read-a-louds include dancing

We had two puppet shows, with ice cream (yum!)

Students could get their faces painted

with great results

or scary results (spiders are the scariest!)

snakes are scary too!

or not on their faces after all

Students could color

or make bookmarks

Students had fun hula hooping

so did librarians

Students could spin the Chick-fil-A Wheel to win a prize

There was jump roping too.

Eventually the students had to go back to school.


Hooping girl says:

Hooping is such a great activity for kids and adults. I’m so glad to see kids are still having fun with this classic exercise! Great Job.
