Programming

We talked about programming in the public services chapter, so we are not going into a lot of detail here. While many libraries have storytime and summer reading programs, programming is unique to each library. Programming is yet another way of marketing the library and improving public relations. It can offer new services to library users and even draw in non-library users. Many times a program can be done for free or at a low cost. Remember to keep your community in mind as you decide what types of programming to offer.
