WebJunction is on a programming idea roll. Last week we featured oodles of ideas for libraries looking for inspiration for their Library Kitchens and Cooking Programs.
Ideas spanned exploring English language and cultural literacy through cooking to involving dietitians from local grocery stores to lead programs, and lots more.
Examples of great programs and initiatives for small and rural libraries were abundant from the 12 speakers at the Big Talk for Small Libraries conference we recapped.
This week we featured a program from The Brentwood Library (TN) – the Teen Exam Cram Week program was a big success, with hundreds of participating students (and dogs!). A great model for libraries considering such a program.
Our twice-monthly series The Social Library just spotlighted a literacy program for fourth-grade boys in Ohio, the DC Public Library’s new Memory Lab, exercise bikes in the Troy University Libraries (AL), and more.
If you have plenty of ideas but are struggling with how to manage and prioritize, check out the recap of Tuesday’s webinar Purposeful Innovation: Idea Management for Libraries.
Remember, if you missed the webinar, you can also watch the archived recording whenever it's convenient for you.
