OYAN Fall Workshop:   Outcome-based evaluation: Putting teen programs on a
level playing field with children’s programs

Friday, October 21, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Wilsonville Public Library

Katie Anderson, Youth Services Consultant of the Oregon State Library, will
present on outcome based evaluation.

Teen programs typically get significantly less attendance than children’s
programs so it’s difficult to use statistics to justify your time and
budget. Outcome based evaluation is a way to find out the impact your
program has on the teens who participate and communicate the value of your
time and budget. At this presentation you will get an overview of outcome
based evaluation and will work on developing an outcome based evaluation
for one of your teen programs or services. Come with one teen program or
service you want to evaluate in your mind. Leave with desired outcomes for
that program or service, ideas for evaluating it, and ideas for
communicating the result to your library director and other stakeholders.

If you’d like to join us, please email Bobbye Hernandez (
bobbyeh at multcolib.org) and let us know you are coming.
Come for a workshop and stay for the meeting! The Fall membership meeting
will follow the programming workshop from 1 to 4 p.m. OYAN meetings are
lively, fun and not just business!  Share and learn about new books and
program ideas with your colleagues and help strengthen teen services in
