More than 200 kids of all ages rocked, rattled and rolled at Tower Park Amphitheater in Fort Thomas for the World’s Largest Storytime on Wednesday, Aug. 10.
CCPL was proud to participate in the event, which was part of the Childhood Literacy Initiative, sponsored by the United Way, the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. Simultaneous storytimes were held at other locations in the area. In Fort Thomas, morning rains gave way to glorious, albeit hot and steamy sun just in time for a big crowd.
CCPL Children’s Librarians revved up the youngsters, who were supplied with free maracas, with singing and dancing to kick things off. Then Newport Children’s Librarian Joan Johnsen, who is retiring this month after 14 years, led a raucus reading of Bill Martin Jr., John Archambault and illustrator Lois Ehlert’s children’s classic, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. The youngsters joyfully supplied the “boom booms” during the reading.
The party continued with a reading of Eric Litwin’s Pete the Cat by Carrico/Fort Thomas Children’s Librarian Laura Stanfield.
Balloon artists from Cincinnati Circus Company entertained parents and children and, of course, presented kids with creatively crafted balloons. There were also plenty of activities for the kids, including bookmark coloring, tattoos and book giveaways.
And perfect relief from the heat was provided by cool refreshments, courtesy of Kona Ice.
Campbell County Public Library thanks everyone who came down to Tower Park and made this special day a big success. Thanks also to those who donated new or gently used books, which will be used to strengthen literacy and overcome educational barriers in childhood poverty. In addition, thanks to our partners, the City of Fort Thomas, for providing the venue, and Blue Marble Books, 1356 South Fort Thomas Ave., Fort Thomas.
