Be among the first to hear what we learned about readers’ advisory services in public libraries during a recent survey featured in the February 1 issue of Library Journal. Developed in conjunction with NoveList and the RUSA/CODES Readers’ Advisory Research and Trends Committee, we sought answers to a variety of questions, including:

• Is RA here to stay, or is its value declining?
• Does every library in the country (other than yours) have a fully staffed readers’ advisory department?
• What digital strategies are libraries using to suggest books to readers?

Join us for an engaging discussion where our panelists will share their reactions to the survey results, offering insights about what it all means for you and the readers in your community. Whether you believe that bringing books and readers together is at the heart of what libraries do, or you wonder just how important this work really is — you will not want to miss this exclusive event.
