Enroll in Quality Adult Programming for Your Library.  Class Starts January
18, 2016

*Senior and Adults appreciate quality programming. Learn how to make your
programs relevant and fun for adult and older participants. *

If you don't have a regular group of adult learners and participating
seniors attending programs at your library, you are leaving out an
important group.

Make it relative and interesting and they will come.

Find out what you can do to create quality Adult Programming in your
library and discover what others have done in libraries across the country.
You will create a program (on paper-that you can use in the future) with
the help of your instructor and others in the class. Join the fun and leave
with a portfolio of idea suggestions.

What makes a successful program, how to collaborate with other
organizations, take field trips, bring experts in, and get funding sources
will be included,

Online Format, 4 Week Workshop, 12 hours overall. Access 24/7.

*Unit 1-What makes an adult program successful? What are your goals in
creating adult programming. What do you want to achieve? Ingredients for
creating your own adult programming. How other libraries are doing it. Unit
2-Creating meaningful programing ideas for all adults patrons. Calling all
college age; catering to career adults, celebrating singles and
seniors. Unit 3-Collaborating. Measuring success. Don't give up the tried
and true-but do invent something new. A moveable feast-taking your adult
program on the road. Creating a program template. Unit 4-Marketing your
program, creating flyers, contacts, posters, and displays. How to make a
portfolio of ideas. *
