Avoid Programming Burnout: Tap into Your Interests to Stay Engaged Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, June 20, 2018, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Being a programming librarian is a tough job! When you try to balance planning, marketing, and executing your programs with your other job responsibilities, it can be easy to lose your enthusiasm. We all want to create dynamic, innovative, and useful programming for our patrons, but programming burnout is real. 

In this presentation, Katie LaMantia and Emily Vinci provide you with practical strategies for avoiding burnout in the best possible way—by incorporating your authentic self into your programs. By being true to your own interests and passions, you'll be able to provide the best services for your patrons while finding professional satisfaction for yourself.

By participating in this event, you will:

  • Learn how to challenge yourself, think outside the library, and create new experiences at your library for your patrons and staff
  • Seek out the balance of meeting the needs of your patrons and community while avoiding burnout and bringing your unique self to the library and programming
  • Gain confidence to try new programming and reach new audiences
