SPRING BREAK PROGRAMMING
From the ALSC blog: "...There may be less children in the building than the afterschool crowd, but the demands are higher. The kids have l-o-n-g days that are more unstructured than normal, and they are looking for something to do. And, many times, their parents are looking for something for them to do. Desperately."
From Youth Services Shout-Out: "Looking for a fun, interactive element to add to your youth area that won't take up too much space--AND won't break the bank?"
