Summer Reading Programs for Adults

Hosted by Infopeople

Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenters: Morgan Pershing and Heather Cousin

If you’re not planning to offer an Adult Summer Reading Program, WHY NOT? Adults are people, too, and having a Summer Reading Program is a great way to show them your library cares. Did you know participants in Adult Summer Reading Programs:

  • Have families who also participate?
  • Are looking for ways to stay active and involved?
  • Become library advocates?
  • VOTE for Library funding?

Now that you know why you should have a program, join Santa Clara City Library Librarian, Morgan Pershing and Simi Valley Public Library Director, Heather Cousin, as they share the nuts and bolts of creating a successful Adult Summer Reading Program at your library. During the webinar, Morgan and Heather will discuss:

  • How to start a program for first timers, including how to encourage your administrators and fellow staff to support your effort
  • How to enhance your existing program
  • How to develop affordable programming
  • How to target adults

This webinar will be of interest to Adult Services Librarians and anyone curious about Adult Summer Reading Programs.
