Event Name:
Creating and Maintaining a Summer Reading Database

Children and Records Management

In this workshop, library staff will get a peek at the Kent Free Library's Summer Reading Database, used for the first time in 2019.  Completely customizable to your needs, a summer reading database can help your library streamline registration and stats keeping-all without having to pay for an online program subscription.  See how Kent Free Library's system works for their library, and how it might work for yours!

Learning Objectives:
  • How Microsoft Access can be used to mimic an online registration program, 
  • How Access can be used to streamline summer reading record keeping and statistics, and
  • How an Access database can be customized to suit your summer reading program.
