"Book to Action: putting words into action"

Date & Time: October 6th, 2015 12:00 PM. Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM.

Presenter: Mary Menzel

Description: This webinar will be of interest to California public libraries, but others may find it of interest and are welcome to attend.
Civic engagement programming is an exploding area of library service, and community-building is high on the list of priorities for 21st-century libraries. If you’ve been wondering how to get started in these crucial areas, this webinar is for you.

Book to Action is an inspirational program that builds on the book group idea to include a community service opportunity. Libraries choose a book on a topic of interest to their community and enlist a partner agency to create a volunteer activity that addresses the topic. The book’s author is invited to speak and then the community is invited to participate in the volunteer activity.

Libraries around California have found that Book to Action is the perfect way to expand the library’s reach and to attract new partners, as it builds on our traditional brand – books – and looks forward into new possibilities.

Join Mary Menzel, Director of the California Center for the Book, to learn what Book to Action is all about and how your library can apply for funding.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

- Understand the concepts behind Book to Action.

- Be familiar with the online toolkit that provides ideas for books and community partners (http://www.library.ca.gov/lds/getinvolved/booktoaction)

- Be aware of the application process for Book to Action funding and deadlines for programming and reports.

- Be aware of what support and resources are available from the California Center for the Book.

This webinar will be of interest to California public library staff and volunteers looking for community engagement programs for their libraries.

By focusing on UX, you can help shape how users feel about your library. UX will also assist you with setting measurable objectives to get real results, and guide your decision-making on the library's priorities.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

- Be able to identify what user experience is and how it applies to libraries.

It may seem impossible to know how to begin cross-training and cross-departmental collaboration when time and money are tight.
