Movie Clubs At Your Library / Taking it to the Street, Mall, Fair, Festival…Exposing the Library to a Crowd
    Thursday May 24, 2012 10:30am - 12:00pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 330

    Movie Clubs At Your Library (Osicki)

    Based on my experience with creating and running a Movie Club for the Saint John Free Public Library, this session will address the following issues and practical matters involved with showing films in a library setting & holding regular discussions about them, among others: selecting films for screening & recommended selection tools, choosing appropriate audio/visual equipment, obtaining public performance licences & why this is important, promotion & publicity materials, free and almost-free movie source options for tight budgets, and film review and critical resources for discussion group material.

    Taking it to the Street, Mall, Fair, Festival…Exposing the Library to a Crowd (Pottie)

    The purpose of this presentation is to show how South Shore Public Libraries took their library out to the people. The joint South Shore Public Libraries/Lunenburg Queens Community Access Society project took a 'mini-branch' out onto the street to show people exactly what a library is, and thereby showcasing SSPL and LQC@P<mailto:LQC@P> to the people of Lunenburg and Queens Counties. This presentation will show how SSPL 'got the show on the road' (how we set up our traveling Library and C@P<mailto:C@P> site), the benefits of having a traveling site, and some of the opportunities (and related feedback) that have already been pursued. Attendees will see how a mini traveling Library/C@P<mailto:Library/C@P> Site is put together and sent out on the road. Details from inception to evaluation will be shared, including circulation statistics, budget, and community response.
