I know that every librarian checks a copy of Chases Calendar of Events, but just in case these have slipped your mind, here are a few dates that are coming soon:
- September 23—Batman Day (or is it Harley Quinn Day? She turns 25 this year.) You can download your Batman Day event kit here.
- Also on September 23—Museum Day Live! Free admission to museums! Check with your local museums to see if they are participating, or check this interactive map of Museum Day Live! participants.
- September 30—National Public Lands Day Grab your friends and family and head to the park! Admission is free for all federal lands and many state parks on this day. Follow @NEEFusa on Twitter or
- October 4-10—World Space Week The U.S. in under-represented in the celebration of this commemorative week, but any excuse to promote space is a good one in my book!
- October 8-14—Fire Prevention Week Enlist the help of your local fire department to obtain materials or a visit from Sparky, the fire dog to your school or library. Anything we can do to avoid a preventable tragedy is worth doing.
Of course, don't forget that it's Library Card Sign-Up Month!
This is by no means an exhaustive list - just what happens to be on my radar.
Feel free to add anything I may have missed.
