ALA Unit/Subunit: ALA
Meeting Type: Ignite Session
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
Ever thought of becoming book fairies? Or doing a pop-up in the middle of a music festival?
Organizations like Books on the Underground (http://booksontheunderground.co.uk/), Book Fairies (https://ibelieveinbookfairies.com/), and Little Free Library (https://littlefreelibrary.org/), promote sharing the love of reading, bringing books to where people are, and encouraging passing a book forward, or leaving a book in return for someone else to read.
This ignite session will explore fun and creative ideas, from pop-up libraries to asking volunteers to become book fairies, for community outreach and engagement that will take you out of the library and into your community.
