Project for Public Spaces | 25 Mini-Adventures in the Library | More TechBits | Scoop.it

I wanted to share a quick list of fun things you can do at the library other than just check out books. Any of these ideas would be a great boredom buster. Just tell your kid you have an adventure in mind and embrace the mission with verve. You will have a great time!

Doug Mirams's curator insight, February 10, 2013 4:06 PM

"Recently, we came across a Amy Bowers’ MamaScout, a blog that “celebrates passionate, creative family living through posts showcasing open-ended play and projects, stellar resources, weird ideas, and gentle encouragements to slow down and embrace the ordinary.” Amy often writes about inventive ways that parents can use public space to spark their kids’ imaginations, with posts on everything from poetry bombing to hands-on exploration and the importance of wandering."

"But it was a post on libraries that caught our attention last week, for how it exemplifies the kind of Lighter, Quicker, Cheaper thinking that each individual can use to activate their public spaces in new and exciting ways right now. Amy was kind enough to agree to let us re-publish her post, so without further ado, here are 25 mini-adventures that you can have at your local library—whether you have kids, or not!"

Everybody Let's Jump (For Your Library)

Ran across this great example of a library using social media for fundraising and advocacy! Too cute not to post (and share, and talk about, and donate), right? Nicely done!
