Now that many public libraries are wrapping up your Summer Library Program, it's a chance to review what worked and to think about what you'd like to do next year. To help you plan your 2014 SLP programs, I asked Winnefox member libraries to share who was their library's best Summer Library Program performer in 2013, and got these great reviews:
Build-A-Bear Workshop® is accepting literacy and education grant requests from now through October 2011.
From Mark Arend:
Talked with one of the performers this morning. He suggested cooperating with other organizations in town (nursing homes, schools, senior centers, service clubs, etc) to book performers and save money. We work with other libraries but don't always think of these other groups. He also said that he'd cut his fee for the offer of a back bedroom for the night, as he sleeps in a tent when he's making the rounds of libraries for SLP performances.
