PLA to offer free webinar on measuring outcomes for better summer library programs

This April, the Public Library Association (PLA) will offer a free webinar to help libraries measure the success of their summer reading and learning programs. The webinar, Using Project Outcome to Measure & Build a Better Summer Library Program, will be held on April 27 at 1:00 p.m. Central Time. This online learning opportunity will leverage resources provided through Project Outcome, a free service from PLA which libraries can use to make program improvements, justify funding requests, and strengthen community partnerships. 

Webinar participants will learn what other libraries have done to successfully gather outcome data about summer learning, and why standardized summer program outcomes are so important from the state library’s perspective. Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own experiences as well. To register or for more information, click here.
