Competency: Readers' Advisory

Sub-Topic: Demonstrates a broad
knowledge of the library's collection and of a wide range of materials of
interest to library readers

Booktalking is at the heart of what we do with
patrons each and every day at the public library. 

Whether we are sharing books
informally at the services desk, presenting a prepared list of books, or
posting information online, talking about books is something we do each and
every day.

It is a core service, but it is also hard to
teach. Booktalking is more of an art than a skill, but with the right guidance
and some practice, it can go a long way toward engaging your patrons and
re-energizing your staff.

Join experienced Readers' Advisory Becky
Spratford as she shares the secret behind delivering great book talks, giving
you tips and tricks you can begin using right away to hone your own skills. 

the power and joy that comes from sharing books with patrons.
