CHICAGO—ALA Publishing eLearning Solutions announces a new session of our popular workshop, 36 Adult Program Ideas in 90 Minutes with Amy Alessio. This workshop will last 90 minutes and take place at 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific on Thursday, September 6, 2018.

If you’re responsible for programming in your library, you know that it’s a year-round job. Celebrating annual seasons and events can give you inspiration for events that are popular and easy to promote. Plan your programs with confidence! In this workshop, library program guru Amy Alessio will give you three program ideas for each month that you can expand, adapt and modify to fit your community’s needs. The presentation will include many low-cost ideas that require minimal staff time. You’ll also have the chance to engage in conversation and Q and A with Amy.
