Sunday Ignite Session: Outreach - Keep It Simple, Stupid Other Moscone Convention Center

Outreach. We know we need to do it. Studies and our own experience show that most Americans are ignorant about the services of a 21st century library. But we're so busy IN the library, how could we ever find the time to get OUT of the library and into the community?

Here's the secret: effective outreach can be as simple as having a conversation. Based on the Unexpected Library Project, a six month pilot program exploring non-traditional outreach for the Los Angeles Public Library, I'll explain how you can get started doing incredible outreach with just an hour a week.
