Major retailers use “Treasure Hunts” as a way to encourage customers to visit their stores as often as possible, and it’s a tried and true method! Libraries across the nation are using a similar concept to get their communities excited about their services by offering many different programs targeting different audiences.
In order to promote their events, libraries have been taking their programs on the road, to the street, and into schools. Some even offer pop-up programs in the library open space, such as in the plaza of library building, or the entry hall of the library floor. These various unconventional library programs prove to be very effective and are helping libraries become “the cool place” to be.
Our panelists will talk about their experiences in creating events & activities that promote the sense of treasure hunting in the library world.
