Staff members at Scranton Memorial Library were given the opportunity to plan an hourlong program on any topic using any format they'd be comfortable with. We had round tables, direct presentations, Q&A sessions, group art sessions and a live demonstration of ancient Greek battle tactics.
Topics have included genealogy, retro video games, and arts and crafts.
This not only gave our staff the opportunity to share their own interests but also demonstrated to our community how talented and knowledgeable our staff is. We also had the opportunity to test what types of programs might be successful with different demographics.
Library staff get one hour to present on a topic they are passionate about! Topics have included ancient warfare and retro video games.
