So many ideas

As the summer approaches, there is a lot that is going on. Especially as I’m setting about looking at new ways to organize the Summer Reading Program.

One of the issues I’m thinking about is the issue of Prizes. Yeah, I think I want to get away from the overwhelming concern of prizes… There are some super ideas that address this. the ALSC blog has collected these ideas into a couple posts.

This is an AMAZING way to change up the Summer Reading Program- make it a summer Library Program!

Yes, we can change the summer reading program. This can be a change centered on making the library more accessible to the community, serving its members, filling its needs, and ultimately making an enormous positive impact!
