Please join us at noon on Thursday, March 1, 2018, for an hour-long webinar on how to plan and present an outcome- and outreach-based summer reading program.

The webinar is free but registration is required because spaces are limited.

Participants will:

  • Learn the value of conducting outcome- and outreach-based program planning and evaluation;
  • Discover the importance of summer reading outreach, and how outreach is an integral part of the Summer @ Your Library outcomes initiative;
  • Hear case studies from Los Angeles Public Library and Glendora Public Library on how they present outcome-based programming using California’s statewide summer outcomes;
  • Find out how Summer @ Your Library project staff can help you by:
    • providing surveys tailored to early learners, children, teens, and adults;
    • setting up online surveys for libraries to collect and report outcomes data;
    • providing libraries with personalized reports that will help demonstrate the impact and value of your programs to stakeholders;
    • offering strategies for how to get started with doing outcome- and outreach-based evaluation;
    • and providing access to a comprehensive set of online resources.

Although the webinar will focus on summer programming, participants will learn skills they can use in planning and evaluating other programs.
