Designing High-Participation Summer and Winter Reading Programs

Presented by: Zoobean & Library Journal
Event Date & Time: Thursday, November 30th, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT

Aggregating the results of over 2,000 summer reading programs, and looking deeper at the libraries which have run the highest participation summer programs, our data shows that seemingly small decisions can have a measurable impact. Registration, logging, incentives – all play a hand in readers’ engagement and program success. This webcast provides an overview of key insights and recommends some “best practices” that are enabling top-performing libraries to get the most out of their reading programs.
