October 24, 2019 – Summer @ Your Library Is Designed to Reach and Engage Everyone Preconference Workshop

Thursday, October 24, 2019 | 2pm – 5pm
California Library Association Annual Conference
Pasadena Convention Center

CLA’s Summer @ Your Library workshop will bring library staff together for discussions and presentations around summer programming, outreach strategies, and best practices.

The workshop will introduce and focus on Summer @ Your Library’s Quality Principle #4: Summer @ Your Library Is Designed to Reach and Engage Everyone.
The workshop will cover:

• How to create a summer at your library that offers something for all ages and the many demographic groups in your community.
• How to design programs that are responsive to the cultures, languages, abilities, and other diversities in your communities.
• How to reach people who have not previously taken part in your library’s summer programs.

Join us for a workshop that will help you plan, assess, and improve your summer reading and learning programs in order to reach and engage a broader, more diverse group of library users. You will hear from colleagues that are already implementing these principles, and you’ll develop strategies for implementing and achieving these principles in your own libraries.

Summer at Your Library Quality Principles and Indicators can be found at:

We hope you can join us and ensure that summer 2020 connects many new faces to your library’s summer programs!
