Doors:  Opening Books, Providing Effective Reader’s Advisory 

Presented by Nancy 
order to effectively match up a reader with just the right book, it's helpful to 
understand how to apply the concept of “doorways” in suggesting reading 
material.  This session will focus on defining, identifying, and using 
doorways in RA situations.  We'll also discuss how mood and motivation 
affects whether or not a reader will enjoy a particular book. Finally, Nancy 
will be offering tips on how to grow your knowledge of books and how to conquer 
“desk paralysis.”

the afternoon, discover booktalking!  Everywhere we go we have the 
opportunity to share our love for good books to read. Learn how to booktalk with 
your library users, whether it's a presentation for a community group or talking 
one on one to an individual in the library stacks.  Or outside the library, 
while you're working out at the gym, talking to family members on the phone, 
waiting in the grocery line, or having lunch with friends.  In this 
workshop we’ll discuss the elements of good booktalks; how to structure a 
booktalk; and what’s important to include (and not include).
