Kids Entertainment Ideas for Libraries in CT, MA, RI, and NH!

Library-use models are changing, and we’re excited to help our amazing library clients create more interactive days and activities as their place in their town’s social life changes too.

Here are a few of our most popular library options, and why our librarian clients choose them.

MOST POPULAR – CARTOON MEET AND GREET

  • Details – Have a character come to do a amusement-park-styled meet and greet where each kid can meet them, have them work the front desk, have them greeting guests as they enter the library, or do story time. These packages are SUPER flexible and because all of our cartoon characters are trained actors, they can even switch the plan mid-event if you need.
  • Why librarians love it – having a cartoon character (or several) visit for a day is a great way to get families in and more unique than other kid-centered activities. We can get through a LOT of children through meet and greets and it’s more flexible than other packages.
  • Price – relatively low. Because we can get through around 30 children per hour for a meet and greet, the cost-per-child is lower than most other activities.
  • Educational Tie-Ins – Kick off summer reading campaigns or, with the rising popularity of illustrated kids books, do special comic book days.

MOST EDUCATIONAL – BALLOON CLASSES

  • Details – Have a balloon artist come and do small work-shops with anyone over the age of 6. You can also add-on hours of professional balloon twisting if you want to entertain guests earlier or later in the day!
  • Why Librarians Love It – If you don’t have a full maker-space but want to offer a different and creative workshop, this takes almost no supplies or space.
  • Price – Higher per guest than a meet-and-greet, but exactly the same per-hour price as all other balloon twisting packages.
  • Educational Tie-Ins – Maker-spaces and workshops are big right now, and these are great additions to any workshop or craft spaces.

WANT ANYTHING ELSE? Just ask! All of our packages can be tweaked especially for libraries. We’d love to help get families into your branch!
