New Offering- Adult Summer Reading Program
The 2019 theme for summer reading is a "Universe of Stories." Our workshop will discuss the theme but will also be a venue for sharing ideas for adult summer reading and programs no matter what theme you have chosen.
Increase your number of participants by incorporating populations you may have not thought to include in the past. Rhonda Johnston, former Outreach Librarian for Reed Memorial Library, will talk about including adults with developmental disabilities, in memory care, in assisted living and in adult day care programs, into your summer reading program.
Janet Ingraham Dwyer, Library Consultant with the State Library of Ohio, will share an overview of the “A Universe of Stories” adult programming manual and materials from the Collaborative Summer Library Program. Janet will also share free state and national resources to help you create an out-of-this-world space-themed summer library program for the adults in your community.
The day will end with a roundtable discussion about adult summer reading and adult programming. Please bring your successes, ideas and challenges to share with the group.
