Supersize Your Programming Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Monday, May 13, 2019, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

When it comes to library programs, scalability is key. When you serve a large community, you need to be able to do large programs—but sometimes small libraries have large programs too. Large scale programming takes coordination and cooperation between staff at all levels and across departments, and sometimes even involves partnering with community organizations.

In this new workshop, library programming experts Emily Vinci and Katie LaMantia break down the key ingredients in pulling off a library take-over and show you how to create a workable template for putting on your own large-scale library program. You’ll learn about key aspects of large-scale event coordination through real-world program examples and benefit from the instructors’ years of experience in budgeting, marketing, and community partnerships for libraries of all sizes.

Registration for this workshop can also be purchased as a part of the Library Programming for All Ages, Stages, and Sizes Workshop Bundle.

After participating in this event, you will

  • Gain specific ideas for large scale events;
  • Understand how large-scale programs can appeal to and involve patrons of all ages;
  • Know how to assemble a team of staff with different knowledge bases and perspectives for a well-rounded program; and
  • Be able to begin creating community partnerships to help to create events that are not just library-wide, but also community-wide.

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins. Attendees should add messenger@webex.com to their approved email sender list, so they can ensure that they receive the automatic notifications.
