What a great idea!
We’ve had a couple of very successful programs for our local teens. We hosted a Blind Date With a Book, where library books were wrapped in paper and labeled only with a small singles-ad-style blurb.
Teens were encouraged to take home a book based solely on the paragraph attached. This sense of mystery allowed for them to be surprised by an author that they may not have encountered, or to unwittingly revisit an old favorite.
Up next was our Readbox display. I’m sure most of you are familiar with Redbox, the DVD and video game rental kiosks.
And finally, some days it’s important to just have fun at the library. Nothing helps this like a subtle addition to our self-check station.
