Covers how to generate ideas for programs, how to determine what's hot and what's not, and how to determine the best formats for your programs.

In addition, you will be given guidance on how to find funding for your programs, how to recruit participants, and how to publicize your programs. Included are sample forms, checklists, and promotional materials that can be used. A very useful resource guide for libraries and librarians involved in programming.
