Synopsis: Author and illustrator programs can offer inspiration to participants -- and a huge challenge to organizers. This commonsense advice on everything from the initial contact to the final thank-yours will eliminate any unnecessary anxieties or overlooked details. East -- a past president of ALA's Association for Library Service to Children -- chronicles the entire process: getting the right people involved in the decision to invite the speaker, choosing authors, getting in touch with them, budgeting, planning, correspondence, publicity, the timeline, logistics of the visit, evaluation, and thank-you letters.
From Library Journal:
Good parent/child workshops are often a librarian's most challenging assignment. Feinberg, director of the Middle Country Public Library (Centereach, NY), and Deerr, head of the Children's and Parent's Services Department of the Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library (Shirley, NY), provide all the information necessary to conceive and conduct a successful parent/child workshop. Their book begins with a description of a model library program based on Feinberg's program at Middle Country. The authors outline specific goals and objectives that can be adapted to meet the needs of different libraries. They then discuss the practical issues involved in putting a workshop together, from creating the right setting to staffing needs and costs. Feinberg and Deerr list the best children's materials, offer tips on how to develop a parenting collection, and provide appendixes that include support collections, a distributors' directory, and a bibliography of professional literature. This is an excellent single source for librarians who are developing a parent/child workshop.
