Turn on a Dime: Changing Your Library on a Limited Budget


Apr 22, 2015 12:00am


Credits: None available.

Members: $0.00
Standard: $6.99

Description

In an age of dwindling budgets and rising expectations, librarians must constantly be on the lookout for inexpensive ways to improve their libraries. This webinar equips librarians with inventive strategies for enhancing their library’s atmosphere at minimal to no cost. The presentation recounts how—with the help of eager student volunteers— presenter Jennifer Holt was able to re-design, re-shelve, and reinvigorate Willoughby South High’s library to create an organized and aesthetically pleasing information commons. A Google slideshow showcases economically savvy strategies for enhancing a library’s physical space as well as its online presence while encouraging students to take an active role in their library’s transformation. Participants will leave the session with extension resources including a sample grant proposal, a list of grant-writing tips, a list of student program suggestions, a study hall expectations handout, an aiding application with skills inventory, and most importantly an inspired outlook for turning their libraries into places where students feel welcome and excited to learn.
