May and June Webinars

Beyond Book Groups: Fun Library Programs for Adult Readers

Wednesday, May 27, 2015,  11 am Pacific (60 min)
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/beyond-book-groups.html

Think outside the book group! Libraries are re-engaging with adult readers and sharing books with them in innovative new ways and in unconventional places. From pop-up programming on planes, trains and ferries, to Books on Tap, a literary sport over local brews, jump into the programming sandbox to explore creative ideas for reaching new adult audiences and delighting the bibliophiles in your own community.

Presented by: Audrey Barbakoff, Adult Services Manager, Kitsap Regional Library (WA), and 2013 Library Journal Mover & Shaker<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2013/03/people/movers-shakers-2013/audrey-barbakoff-movers-shakers-2013-change-agents/>

Beyond Books Sales: Practical Ideas for Raising Funds for Your Library

Tuesday, June 23, 2015, 11 am Pacific (60 min)
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/beyond-book-sales.html

It's time to take a fresh look at ideas for raising funds for your library. Although book sales have been a standard library fundraiser, they take a lot of time and effort, with dwindling returns on investment in recent years. Whether considering new types of events or tried-and-true activities, you'll learn the "12 Must-Know Facts About Fundraising." Find out how to assess your library's capacity for fundraising, enlist the right volunteers, engage the community, and create a sustainable plan to boost your library's bottom line and raise visibility. With this strong foundation, libraries of any size can move into new directions to grow support for their libraries.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>.

Presented by: Sue Hall, Director of Library Strategies<http://thefriends.org/consulting/>
