Librarian Post: Adults Just Wanna Have Fun!

Do adults get to have fun anymore?

I am not talking about the type of fun that we think it's ok for adults to have - going out drinking or dancing or taking the kids to a movie.... I mean FUN fun... the kind of fun we used to have when we were kids.

Sure. some adults out there get to play with Legos or jump ropes or tether balls, but I am willing to bet most of those adults do these things with their kids, or BECAUSE of their kids. Do we do it on our own? Do those of us who don't have kids do these things? Probably not, because for some reason we are raised to think we have to give up these things in order to be REAL grown-ups.

I respectfully call bullshit.

This is why for the rest of the year I will be focusing my programming on ways for adults to have real, goofy, child-like fun in the library. Trust me, it's good for you! Playing with things like play-doh and blocks helps relax you, it helps with fine motor skills for older types and it gives your imagination an outlet! Having fun, good healthy laugh out loud goofy kid fun is good for your heart, your soul and your spirit. It heals the mind AND the body!

Stay tuned for my adventures in fun things!
