Libraries aren’t a retail environment, but we still have a product to promote – reading. Thinking of readers as customers means we need to develop ways to increase library traffic and circulation statistics, and position ourselves - as Readers' Advisors - as a knowledgeable participant in the book selection process. This program will give you some thought-provoking ideas on nudging patrons in creative reading directions, publicizing your back catalog, approaching traditional concepts in inventive ways and flexing your Readers' Advisory muscles.
