There is still time for your library to sign-up to participate in The Great Give Back taking place on October 19th. The Great Give Back gives libraries the chance to create a community service event designed specifically for your patrons. This can range from holding a food drive for a local food pantry to organizing a community-wide clean-up event – the choice is yours! If your library is interested in participating, even if you’re not sure what your program will be yet, please fill out the RSVP form by June 30th: https://bit.ly/2QvunOJ
There will be two online meetups for libraries that have signed up for The Great Give Back. These meetings will help library staff brainstorm ideas, get some marketing tips, and feel prepared for their October event.
• July 17th | 1:00-2:00pm | Topic: Planning & Ideas
• September 10th | 2:00-3:00pm | Topic: Check-In
Please register for both of these workshops through the online calendar http://calendar.midhudson.org/
