Passive programming engages learners both young and old(er). These types of activities draw students into the library and require minimal work up front. Programs can run for weeks on end so students can play and engage on their own time frame. Elevate your program on a minimalist budget and get kids involved. Be a sneaky library ninja and lead them in to the library with your creative curriculum connections.
