Linda recommends a NELA presentation on Vimeo entitled Killing Librarianship
We also discussed using display space creatively and changing it periodically. This summer many of us are using the adult theme: Groundbreaking Reads and will be doing monsters, zombies and cave displays.
Displays can increase attendance because it is an attention grabber.
-paint samples with stamps
-cut and mat greeting cards
-have teen advisory board make bookmarks to hand out at circ desk–especially for evanced summer reader.
Suggestions for next year:
We have several openings, so come to the September meeting with suggestions, or post ideas to the blog.
