We’re All Tourists Sometime: Learning from libraries who serve both tourists and residents

Wednesday, July 16, 2014 - 2:00pm

 

  • Do you work in a public library in a community that sees lots of tourists and wonder how similar libraries serve both their residents and guests?
  • Do you work for a public library in a community that’s trying to attract more tourists?
  • Is your library located in a community that serves a large number of visitors for one or two big festivals or events each year?
  • Are you looking for information about how your library can better entice and serve your community’s guests?

Please join us for this interactive session to learn how libraries in tourist areas promote their services to guests; balance serving residents (both permanent and part-time) and tourists; work with tourism boards; partner with other cultural and recreational organizations; factor visitors into the equations of policies, programs, collections and services; and how all libraries can learn from them to welcome and serve visitors.

Be forewarned-this is not your typical lecture webinar! For this hour, we invite you to interact, share your ideas, ask questions, talk up your successes, and be actively engaged!
