The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office has redesigned its ProgrammingLibrarian.org website, a resource for library programming-related news, ideas and support for all types of libraries. Programming Librarian users may:
- Learn from fellow libraries: Learn how libraries plan, budget for, market and execute programs in their libraries; read advice from the planners; and view photos, videos and planning materials from the event. This information is meant to be enjoyed, adapted and shared.
- Share program ideas: Upload your own library program using the Share Your Program webform.
- Browse Ideas: Search for content by library type, program budget or program topic.
- Explore learning opportunities: Find out about upcoming and previously archived webinars and in-person training opportunities (most of them free).
- Hear from new voices: Read posts by bloggers who represent public, academic, school and state libraries; hail from small towns and large urban centers; and program for a variety of ages and interests.
- Learn about grant opportunities: Visit the About page for a list of current and upcoming grant opportunities from the ALA Public Programs Office.
Feedback, suggestions and questions may be sent to ProgrammingLibrarian@ala.org. Sign up at http://www.programminglibrarian.org/about/get-our-enewsletter to receive Programming Librarian’s biweekly e-newsletter.
ProgrammingLibrarian.org was first created in 2008 with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Continuing support for Programming Librarian is provided by the ALA Cultural Communities Fund.
