Join the Recharge Committee for a workshop on participatory culture in libraries. Participatory experiences put the user in charge of their learning and provide the opportunity for meaningful community connections. Learn strategies to facilitate and scale programs and spaces for your patrons no matter your library’s size by leveraging trends to inspire your community to take ownership of library experiences. Be ready to share ideas and get hands-on with participatory activities.
At the end of this session, participants will:
- Deconstruct traditional methods of programming relevant to their community.
- Identify actions steps to start incorporating participatory elements.
- Evaluate participatory experiences and their impact on the community.
