Library After Dark: After-Hours Programming for Adults

Short Title
Library After Dark: After-Hours Programming for Adults
Summary

Due to everyday commitments, adults can't always make it to library programs during regular business hours. Being more flexible with program times and branching out to alternate locations can boost attendance and be a lot of fun at the same time.

Description

Altoona Public Library LogoJoin us for a webinar with Altoona (Iowa) Public Library to learn how smaller libraries can provide after-hours programming from start to finish for adults, while utilizing limited funds, staffing and space. This session will also share how to prepare for the "what-ifs," including permission/liability forms.

At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify an after-hours program to implement at their library.
  • Determine barriers and corresponding strategies for developing an after-hours program at their library.
  • Outline a marketing strategy for after-hours programming.
