I attended a Lead the Change pre-conference at this year's Wisconsin Library Association Conference, and was pleased to see a bunch of IFLS librarians there. Yay, IFLS!
One of the great ideas that was shared at this workshop was related to Summer Library Programs. Kids who register for the SLP in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana get a Library Champion yard sign. Then parents are encouraged to send in a digital photo of their children for the library to post on their website and social media sites. Not only is this a cool thing for kids, neighborhoods, and library visibility, it also draws lots of traffic to the website and social media sites, as proud parents and caregivers share links to the adorable photos of their children being champions. Several other libraries across the country do this, too.
What a cool idea! Are you going to try it?
