Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Do you ever look for ways to get feedback from kids and parents about your programs? Who wants to interrupt the flow of a fun program with a boring survey?

Becky Arenivar, programming librarian at the Prescott Public Library, has come up with a fun way to document how people react to the program or brainstorm about future programs, and she's used it at teen programs to great effect. Here's the trick: put out a big sheet of white paper and some markers, and ask people as they arrive to take time during and after the program to write a comment or two (or a suggestion for another program). This has worked well, and I can't say I'm surprised! Who can resist markers and big sheets of paper??
