Evaluation
What were the goals/objectives of your program?: 
Bringing families together at the library for reading and fun.
Feedback from Participants: 
Do it again!
Highlights - what worked well?: 
It was all good. The S'mores snack mix disappeared while the participants listened to stories. They really enjoyed taking over the library and building forts, then smuggling together to read. The glow-in-the-dark hide and seek was a fabulous finale to the evening.
What would you change about this program?: 
I would add a pre-cut puppet on a stick the next time for smaller children as they have less dexterity and could enjoy shadow puppet time fully.
