20 Great After School Ideas on a Shoestring Budget

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We will share at least 20 different programming ideas that can be replicated in libraries large and small without being a budget buster! Sharing what worked, and what we would do different if we held it again. We know budgets can be tight, and sometimes you just need some inspiration to try something new and different. We will share where to find the best ideas, and where we get our inspiration when we want to try something new. Participants will be allowed to share their programming hits and misses at the end of the session, because we all know, library staff have the best ideas! Finally, we'll share how we turned our after school programming from boring and predictable to fresh and exciting, and increased attendance numbers.
