We are still meeting on zoom instead of in person, and so we decided to implement a new once a month event called the People in Your Neighborhood. We have asked interested community members to read a story and answer questions about their job. Afterward, we do a craft for which the library provides supplies. We place all the supplies for the craft in paper bags, and patrons can call ahead for the bag to be placed outside for curbside pickup. Our first guest speaker was Firefighter Rebecca with Windsor-Severance Fire Rescue.
Rebecca read them one of her favorite firetruck books, and then we made firefighter helmets like these from momstown. We also put out fires like this post from Sandbox Academy. I provided the paper plates, construction paper for the badge on the hats, the foam fire pieces, and one squirt bottle per family. The families provided their own glue, marker, and tub for water.
