A “program” is a planned interaction between the library staff or designees and the program participants for the purpose of promoting library materials, facilities, or services, as well as offering the community an informational, entertaining, or cultural experience.
Programming includes such activities as storytimes, the summer reading program, book club discussions, and other special events.
The director will also consider what extra classes may be given at the library. These could include craft, computer, financial, genealogy, or readers’ advisory classes, to name a few.
The board, in conjunction with the library director, will establish a budget and goals for programming to facilitate the effective implementation of this service.
