The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office has redesigned its 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).
