Targeting the Ages: Programming that Hits the Mark
Soaring to Excellence Teleconference
Broadcast Date: Friday, February 13, 2009
Speakers: Penny Mandziara and Kelly Watson
Any library, whether it is school, public, academic, or special, is many things to the community it serves. A library offers the information patrons need to improve their quality of life. A library provides open access to technology and the world of online information, as well as guidance on navigating that world. A library also gives their community something that is less tangible, yet just as essential to improving its patronsí lives: nourishment not just for the mind, but the spirit as well.
How do libraries do that? Through the programming opportunities they create.
In this program we will look at some of the innovative programming libraries today are creating to meet the evolving needs of their patrons. We will also provide a basic primer for anyone who has always wanted to plan a program, but didnít know where or how to begin.
This teleconference is 90 minutes in length--Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
During their search for the most innovative programs that libraries are sponsoring today, Penny and Kelly discovered many great programming ideas -- too many to share during the broadcast. In order to share all of their finds with you, they have compiled a workbook. This workbook contains information about all the programs shared on air, as well as the many programs they didn't have time to share. Penny and Kelly have also included tips that beginning program planners will find useful.
