Community Engagement and Programming
Event Description
Programs and outreach can feel daunting for new and old library staff alike. Where do you start? How do you decide what to offer? This webinar will provide a basic overview on what programs and outreach services can look like, how to design and implement them, challenges your library might face, and how to evaluate their success.

Learning Objectives:
  • Attendees will learn about the forms programs and outreach services can take.
  • Attendees will learn about challenges and considerations when designing and implementing programs
  • Attendees will learn how to evaluate their programs whether they go well or poorly, and how to use that data to prepare for the future.
