Creating a Community of Readers: Academic Librarians Promoting Reading on Campus
April 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Speakers: Kayleen Jones (MA’16), Education & Human Service Professions Librarian
Kim Pittman (MA’11), Information Literacy & Assessment Librarian
University of Minnesota Duluth
How can academic librarians help the campus community build awareness of our leisure reading collections and connect to other readers on campus? Two academic librarians will share our successful programming strategies on a difficulty spectrum from easy to ambitious. Our past programs include silent reading parties, pop-up libraries, online book talks from campus community members, a Nerd Nite focused on books and reading, partnerships with public libraries and campus organizations, a community-wide reading program, and more! Attendees from all types of libraries will be able to adapt our approaches for their own contexts.
