Program-a-Rama at ALA Midwinter 2016

Last weekend at ALA Midwinter 2016 in Boston the second Program-a-Rama session was held. Formerly known as Program-a-Looza (but changed to rhyme better), this grassroots session was created as a way for children's library staff to take home tangible programming ideas, tips, and resources.

After introductions, each person shared a favorite cheap, easy, and successful program. Next, we did some group brainstorming on programming topics using pens and sticky notes. Finally, we spent a few minutes discussing programming challenges and possible solutions.

This session was lead by Danielle Jones (Multnomah County Library) and myself (Denver Public Library) and we look forward to hosting another session at ALA Annual 2016 in Orlando.

Wondering what we talked about? Check out the Program-a-Rama Notes.

Want more programming ideas? Take a look at my posts about last year's Program-a-Looza, as well as a the notes from a recent passive programming brainstorming session.
