Competing for Fun and Funds: The 1st Annual ‘Wake the Library’ 5k
Erik Mitchell, Susan Smith, and Mary Beth Lock , Wake Forest University
This session will be a case study of the inaugural “Wake the Library” 5k held in the Fall of 2008 on the campus of Wake Forest University. The 5k was conceived earlier in the year as a means of fund raising for the semi-annual all-night study event in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library. As planning for the race progressed, it became apparent that the process was more complex than we anticipated but also more rewarding. This session will cover what we learned about librarians as race coordinators, what unexpected challenges and opportunities we found, how, (and who) to ask for support, and how events like this can promote the library to the wider community.
