I WANT A TRUCK BOOK! Reorganizing Your Picture Book Collection to Meet the Needs of Young Patrons and Their Caregivers

Sunday, June 24, 2012
4:00 pm to 5:30 pm

US/Pacific (-7)

Find out how and why some public and school libraries are moving away from traditional “alpha by author” picture book shelving to a more intuitive model that takes into account the ways young patrons actually search for reading material. The speakers – two public librarians and one school librarian – will present their rationales for change as well as the nuts and bolts of how they accomplished their reorganizations – and increased both circulation and patron satisfaction.
