9780838908105: Adult Programs in the Library (ALA Programming Guides)

The first in the new ALA Programming Guides series, this book walks you through the process of program development and event planning in two parts. The first section is a "how-to" that prepares you to:

-- Conduct demographic analysis and target the audience in your community

-- Tie your library's mission to specific program offerings

-- Raise funds and generate publicity

-- Produce programs that run smoothly from start to finish

The second section features more than 20 "five-star" programs from around the country. Reading about a variety of successful programs from film series and book discussions to art classes and topical panels, you'll be inspired with ideas for your own programs. Packed with more than 30 sample talking points, surveys, newsletters, press releases, scheduling tools, and checklists, you can hit the ground running and bring your adult programming services to life.

About the Author:

Brett W. Lear is Library Manager at the Jefferson County Public Library in Lakewood, Colorado. He has been actively involved in developing adult programming services since serving as Adult Librarian at the New York Public Library. From 1995-1999, he served on the Reference and User Services Association's "Services to Adults Committee" and in this capacity contributed to Adult Programming: A Manual for Libraries (RUSA, 1997). Lear received his master's degree in library science from Florida State University.

From Booklist:

This adult programming guide is a clearly written book whose first part suggests how to target an audience, choose the best format, evaluate and plan for future programming, and work with foundations. Its second part describes programs in a collection of five-star winners, as identified by the author. There are sample surveys, newsletters, press releases, scheduling tools, and checklists. In addition, each chapter in part 1 provides endnotes which are brief lists of resources for further study. Perhaps the most interesting chapter looks to the future of adult programming and shares ideas from the mailing list Publib. Programming definitely remains part of library service, and this book will help the nervous beginner or possibly weary veteran librarian to take advantage of new funding resources and learn what the community wants and how to share responsibilities.
