Join Lisa Sheffield, Adult Services Librarian at the Transylvania County Library in Brevard, North Carolina, to learn more about hosting a viewing and discussion series for adult audiences. Lisa will share her experiences presenting film-based programs, offering attendees a simple program model, and discussing best practices for scheduling the series, finding and working with a scholar/speaker, setting program and audience goals, promoting the series, facilitating each session, and conducting evaluation.
My library had the privilege of hosting the ALA traveling exhibit “Listening to the Prairie: Farming in Nature’s Image” in 2001. It was an extremely successful but challenging experience. My small library with two staff members and eight student assistants hosted the exhibit for six weeks AND provided a host of complementary programs on campus and in the community as well as provided tours for the exhibit and our campus prairie.
