Passive Programming That Pulls Them In: Provocative Passive Programming Ideas

May 12, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Register for this one-hour webinar.

Passive programming is so much more dynamic than the name might lead you to believe! It is a budget-friendly way to make every library user feel seen, welcomed and important – without putting pressure on their stretched schedules or overloaded attention spans. It works its gentle magic by soliciting opinions, fostering creativity, encouraging humor, and establishing a library community defined by engagement and empathy.

Paula Willey and Andria Amaral, authors of The Passive Programming Playbook: 101 Ways to Get Library Customers Off the Sidelines, show how to turn your high concept goals into inclusive reality with practical examples of passive programming that works, taking a problem-solving approach to space, time, and money limitations – including how to create interactive programming when the doors to the library are locked. 

Whether you are a programming novice or pro, Paula and Andria will give you the tools you need to make your library more engaging and inclusive. Librarians of all kinds will leave the webinar with a functional set of passive programming skills that can be adapted to their own ideas, resources, needs, and community. They will be able to demonstrate the emotional, educational, or skill-building aspects, and will learn how to leverage passive programming to inform additional programming and collection decisions.

Presented by :: Paula Willey and Andria L. Amaral 

The recording will be posted in the CALL Academy.
