Passive programs can be a librarian’s dream or nightmare less work during the program, but limited interaction with customers. A successful program can also prove difficult to track participation. Join a panel of experienced youth services librarians as they tackle the definition of a passive program, how to track participation and share fun examples of ways to engage staff, customers, and children.

  • At the end of this session, participants will hear hands-on tips and tricks from librarians who have implemented passive programs themselves.
  • At the end of this session, participants will take away information and guidance on how to statistically measure participation in a passive program.
  • At the end of this session, participants will feel empowered to brainstorm their own passive programming within their own unique spaces, and will leave with concrete ideas.
