Info on our library programming initiatives.

PaLA

After presenting at the PaLA Annual Conference, we were asked if our materials would be available to view afterward. We created this page so that you could access both our presentation from the conference as well as our other promotional materials.

You can access the powerpoint from the presentation via our Google Drive account [ H E R E ].

Below are the ideas gathered during the presentation (on the purple pieces of paper we collected).

  • Finals Week Programs - Stress Relief, Food
  • Bookcart Races
  • Paper airplane contest
  • Golf hole in one contest
  • Miniature Golf – Tour
  • Scavenger Hunt - Scavenger Hunt using QR Codes
  • Hunger Games type competition
  • Halloween Party
  • Murder Mystery
  • Game programming and design using Scratch (an easy to use game design software)
  • Crafts using old and unwanted books
  • Pairing fitness with reading/library
  • Theatre students practicing/performing monologues and small skits
  • Book Discussions - Specific Banned Book discussions including children’s literature
  •  Facilitate student discussions on timely topics

  •  A cake to celebrate and author’s birthday and a visiting scholar researching that author
  • Research “Therapy” Session

We also set up separate libguides for our Banned Books Week & Library Week event series. They change each year to reflect what we are featuring. At the moment, the materials from 2013 are still up, as our planning for 2014 continues.

All events are also advertised on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/NorthHallLibrary). Now that we have Twitter (www.twitter.com/NorthHallLib) & Instagram (www.instagram.com/NorthHallLibrary), we will likely use them to our advantage as well.
