This week, Darren Thompson at the Blue Island Public Library in Illinois posted on pub-lib about a teen program he runs at the library:
“We host a program called ‘Passport to ____,’ where the teens pick a different country each month and we visit that country using Google Earth, offer dishes from that country (cooked either in the Library – the teens like to watch us prepare them – or at home and then bring them in) and listen to music from the country. It’s been quite successful.”
This program could easily be a September Project event, where teens (or adults or children) could learn more about another culture. I love how he includes food, too! What would this look like at your library?
