Crafting a Successful Adult Education Program for Small, Rural and/or Part-time Libraries

This webinar, presented in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries, showcases successful adult education opportunities for patrons who lack a GED, or other high school equivalency.

This event has passed.

No matter how small a community you serve, your library can provide vital, successful adult education opportunities for patrons who lack a GED, or other high school equivalency. When the Shreve Memorial Library (LA) decided that its small, rural part-time branches should be equipped to serve patrons with the same level of instruction and resources offered in the full-time branches, the first ever Rural Adult Education Program was born. Join us to hear how the library's Adult Education Coordinator devised workable, affordable and manageable strategies to launch the program in small libraries; learn about solutions and alternatives that can be adapted to any budget, workforce, workspace and public need.

This session was presented as a preconference at Association for Rural and Small Libraries 2014 and has been adapted to fit within a 90 minute webinar.

Presented by: Debra Kavanaugh, Adult Educator, Researcher, Curriculum Developer, and most recently, Adult Education Coordinator, Shreve Memorial Library, Louisiana.
