An Infopeople Webinar

June 8th, 2010 12:00 PM
1:00 PM

Intimidated by the prospect of planning events? Are you familiar with the ins and outs of setting up and hosting programs?

Event planning can seem daunting, but with the right tools and resources, anyone can do it, even with a low or nonexistent budget. While some libraries may be cutting back on programming, others may see an opportunity to use low-budget methods to increase it, helping the community and positioning the Library as a valuable resource.

Regardless of position, all library staff is involved to a greater or lesser degree in planning programs for the Library. This presentation will highlight the key aspects of planning programs, such as locating partners, logistics and marketing, while keeping in mind the changes in today's economic climate.

Participants in this webinar will:

  • identify new resources within the community for locating presenters.
  • understand the importance of identifying and describing the purpose of planned events
  • learn new avenues for marketing events

This webinar will be of interest to all staff who plan and present programs in their library.
