Readers' Advisory Roundtable - West, SAVE THE DATE

Readers' Advisory Roundtable - West, SAVE THE DATE In-Person

Join us for our Reader’s Advisory Round Table of Western MA Round the Table.  Watch this space for details. 

We meet bimonthly via jitsi to explore various genres and readers advisory skills and how to use them to meet the needs of our users.  In our Chat sessions, we share what we have been reading and suggestions for materials with similar tone and appeal.  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.

In the between months, we share what we are reading/viewing/listening to in our book chat discussions.   Join us for conversation, edification, and an opportunity to share reading/viewing/listening opportunities.

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