Marking a Milestone: Hosting a Kindergarten Library Card Party

Anna Smithberger, Ann Wahlstrom

Abstract


Take one Caldecott Honor winner and add scores of kindergarteners. Throw in an effort to sign up more library users. Toss in a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers. That’s the recipe for Ramsey County (MN) Library’s (RCL) recent Kindergarten Library Card Party.

It’s a program that has been running since 2008, starting humbly as a partnership between the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries and the Junior League of St. Paul. The latter, a local women’s nonprofit organization focusing on volunteerism, was interested in developing a program where they could put books into the hands of kindergarteners.
