Are you looking for a fun way increase reading engagement with your library users, particularly teens and youth?

Do you want to encourage engagement with the collection or highlight a particular format, genre, or topic with your library users?

Hosting a book tasting might be the answer you need to increase engagement with your collection, collaborate with another local librarian, or answer a research question. Book tasting events engage users in a curated collection using a 30-60-minute restaurant themed event.

In this webinar, presenter Angela Maxwell will share examples of multiple book tasting events targeted at a teen audience. Attendees will have access to templates, as well as free online tools to implement their own book tasting event.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Understand why and how book tasting will work to increase engagement with the library collection.
  • Identify a target audience and purpose for their own book tasting.
  • Take away sample book tasting materials including Goodreads booklists, Book tasting menus, slideshow template, supply lists, and more.
  • Be able to create a book tasting event from start to finish.

This webinar will be of interest to: public, academic, and school librarians, particularly those staff that work with youth, promote reading initiatives, or assist with reference and research needs.
