What's Old is New Again: Nostalgia Programming Ideas - Webinar (02/07/19)

We love the 90s (and 70s and 80s),
and chances are your patrons do too!

 

Learn how to engage with patrons of all ages and bring dynamic programs from the past back into the library with flair. In this webinar you’ll get over fifteen programming ideas and activities for all age groups and budgets. Learn how to incorporate your own personal nostalgic interests into programming, marketing, and partnerships to create programming tailored to your library and patrons.

Virtual Trainer: Katie LaMantia and Emily Vinci

She is a former teen advisory board member turned Teen Librarian at the Schaumburg Township District Library in Schaumburg, Illinois. She has a personal and professional appreciation and interest in pop culture and has presented at multiple library conferences about libraries, teen programming, and 20s and 30s programming. She enjoys writing, traveling, and extreme adventure activities. 

Emily Vinci is the Fiction Manager at the Schaumburg Township District Library in Schaumburg, Illinois. Her professional interests are promoting the acquisition and appreciation of comics and graphic novels in libraries as well as creating programming that targets patrons in their 20s and 30s. She presents frequently about pop culture and millennial-targeted programming. She is a fanatic about the pop culture of the 70s, 80s, and 90 and loves spending time curating her many collections of pop culture ephemera.
