Camping in the Library

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

Camping in the Library

On September 27, as part of the fun programs we offer every Sunday in the Children's Department, we got to go on a camping adventure in the library. It's important to be prepared, so we started our adventure by gearing up. Each child wore a backpack full of the essentials - water, a snack, bug spray, matches and a flashlight. Then we were ready for a hike around the library. After our hike, we rested by our campsite and started building a "fire". We lit our matches and had a nice roaring fire in no time. Then came out the marshmallows. Finally, after a long day full of fun, it was time to climb into the tent, read a few stories and catch some shut eye. It was a great time, and the children got to take home the badges they earned for all their hard work - a trail blazer badge, fire starter badge, and an over-night badge. Way to go!
