Bringing the Arts into the Library

ebook

Using a library's facilities to bring arts to the community is not only a valuable service, but also a wonderful marketing and outreach opportunity, a tangible way to show the public that libraries offer value, thus shoring up grassroots support. Editor Smallwood has combed the country finding examples of programs implemented by a variety of different types of libraries to enrich, educate, and entertain patrons through the arts. Her book shares such successful efforts as:

  • Poetry programs in the public library

  • Gatherings for local authors at the community college

  • Creative writing in middle schools

  • Multicultural arts presentations at the university library

  • Initiatives to fight illiteracy through the arts

    The amazing creativity and resourcefulness found in each example provide practical models which can be adapted to any library environment, inspiring librarians looking for unique programming ideas.
