Okay, so today was the Youth Services Idea Swap in Prescott. Wow, it is amazing when 10 committed and interesting people get together to talk about what works in their library, and what they are struggling with! Look for some detailed reports, coming up.
In the meantime, we collected information from people about favorite and hardest parts of the summer in a previous blog post and got some great answers.
On the favorites end, we got LOTS of happy comments about performers, programs, new teen programs, and increased participation. Oh, and some good gardens. And a new library that is making people's jaws drop. On the not-so-fun end, we heard about heat, humidity, unruly daycare groups, low participation rates at tween programs, and more about heat and humidity.
What did you like best this summer? What was hardest for you?
