Engage young patrons who hang out at your library with programs that run themselves. Rachelle McPhillips, from Columbus Public Library, shares several ideas libraries can adapt to year-round programming. These passive programs are great for libraries that have a thriving young adult program as well as those that are looking to reach out to tweens and teens but have limited time and money.

Transcript of "NCompass Live: Passive Programming for Teens and Tweens"

  1. 1. Passive Programming for Teens and Tweens NCompass Live January 22, 2014
  2. 2. Passive programs… O happen in your absence. O engage patrons. O connect YA patrons to staff. O foster collaboration. O are easy to recycle and reuse. O can be inexpensive. O provide fresh content.
  3. 3. Things to Consider O Stats – Do you need them? How will you track them? O Safety – Is it safe to leave scissors on a table? Do small children have access to the crafting space?
  4. 4. Things to Consider O Acceptable loss – Things will walk away. One patron will use all the cute glitter stickers. O Staff time and involvement – Getting a patron started shouldn’t be longer than a typical customer service situation.
  5. 5. More Things to Consider O Successful passive programs may take lots of time and effort in advance. O It’s smart to have someone else try your program before patrons see it. O Many passive programs can be revamped for younger or older patrons. O Moonsand is probably a bad idea.
