An Infopeople Webinar

Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM

Presenter: Cheryl Lee 

Are you looking for:

  • Quick and easy outreach opportunities?
  • Ways to expand your storytime portfolio?
  • Ideas to increase strategic partnerships with businesses, corporations, and non-profits?

Then look no further than Pop-Up Storytimes. The most popular program in the library is still storytime. What about taking a time-honored program on the road. Instead of having storytime in the library, you could have it at a bank, a toy store, or a car dealership.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be able to identify at least three locations outside the library to perform a storytime.
  • Be able to approach local businesses/corporations and non-profits about Pop-Up Storytimes via email, phone, or in person.
  • Be able to advertise the program using at least two forms of marketing and social media avenues.
  • Learn how to use Pop-Up Storytime as a “gateway” to more strategic community partnerships.

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff that offer services to children and youth, involved with outreach and extension services.
