AtoZ Blogging Challenge – Origami

17 Apr

What: We’ve offered this program a few times for our kids and it’s always met with a lot of interest – but, I’d love to try a program with adults as well. Origami is so much fun because of the hands-on nature of creating something beautiful with something as simple as a piece of paper.

Where: This program does require table space for paper folding, so make sure you have those set up and a small group works best as they’ll need to be close enough to see the how-to and be able to do the same.

When:  This program could be offered at any time during the year which makes it a great fill-in program for a time of a year that is light on programming. Offering this program during a specific season might change what you create in class to reflect the season.

Who: As I said, we offered this program for kids – middle school specifically. But, I think this would be a fun program for adults as well. I think people like creating and this is an easy program to offer to create some really cool origami pieces.

How: Another easy program to have a staff member offer if they are familiar with origami, or see if you can find a patron who’s done origami and would be willing to create a program.

Alternatives:

  • I’ve seen a number of really cute graduation gifts with folded money which could be it’s own program.
  • There are a number of books that provide instructions on creating origami, so maybe you offer a class in understanding origami instructions and then let patrons fold their own creations using the aid of library materials.

During the month of April, I’ll be participating in the 2018 Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For this year’s theme, I’ll be offering you a library program plan with everything you to need to re-create it at your own library. Most of these programs we’ve offered in the past, others are programs I’d like to try in the future. I’m always looking for new inspiration and I thought you might be too!
