Readers' Advisory Roundtable - West, Round the Table Chat

Readers' Advisory Roundtable - West, Round the Table Chat In-Person

Note:  This meeting is changed from April 2 to April 9. 

Join us for our Reader’s Advisory Round Table of Western MA bimonthly Round the Table Chat.   Our Chat sessions alternate with specific genre studies.  In our Chats, we talk about what we have been reading/viewing and consider suggestions for materials with similar tone and appeal and the readers who might enjoy them.  What would you like to share?  No pressure.  Just informal discussion and recommendations among RA colleagues.

We meet bimonthly to explore various genres and readers advisory skills and how to use them to meet the needs of our users.  In alternate months, we study the appeal of a particular genre, the readers who may enjoy that genre, and ways to incorporate them into our readers’ advisory services.  We select a benchmark title that we all read, then each of us reads a second of the genre as our personal selection.  We discuss and compare the titles and their characteristics. We also find items of alternate media in the same general area using our whole collections as a resource.

Join us for conversation, edification, and an opportunity to expand your reading/viewing/listening opportunities.

For questions or suggestions, contact Alene Moroni (amoroni@forbeslibrary.org) or Jan Resnick (njrezz@comcast.net).
