Thrive Thursday is a monthly roundup of some great school-age ideas for the library. The roundup has a blog-hop format, hosted by a different blog every month.

Now, let's get started with the roundup!
Jennifer at "In Short, I am Busy"shared a few great school-age programs:
-- Her annual Monster Boxes program, part of her Messy Art Club, is a great way to get scary in October.
--She also had a Star Wars celebration with a "backwards Angry Birds" game called "Save the Galaxy!" that sounds super fun.
--Lastly, Jennifer shared her Reading Explorer program, encouraging kids to read 500 books before middle school. Everyone do this program right away!
Lauren at Library Lalaland shared her recipe for a Sugar Skulls program and a great example of Frankentoys.
Anne at So Tomorrow made some ArtBots!
Kelly at Ms. Kelly at the Library ran a Spooky Science program for her latest installment of ATLAS (At the Library After School). Which is awesome in its own right, but now it's SPOOKY!
AND I found some other great links that the authors did not submit but I'm curating here because they need sharing:
Brytani at The Neighborhood Librarian has some great passive programs for Fall.
The ALSC Blog hosted some K-8 programming ideas by Meredith Levine.
Holly at Let the Wild Rumpus Start posted about circuits and added art to her cleverly-named Stellar Stories program.
Carolyn at They Call Me Ms Carolyn talked about the latest installment of STEAM Jr.
Jess at From the Liberry Of... muses on the chaos of LEGO Club.
Allison at The Library Kart wrote about a pretty awesome-sounding Sharpie Art program.
Ariel at Hushlander shared a Steven Universe fandom program.
And lastly, you've probably already seen it, but this article on library leadership and gender at In the Library with a Lead Pipe by Jessica and Michelle is a must-read.
