Directors Do It All: Programming

Eclipse 2024

Library Programming

Library programming is something all NYS libraries are required to provide, and overseeing it is a main responsibility of the library director. Depending on the size of your staff, programming may be something you implement yourself or delegate to other staff members or volunteers.

Library programming comes in a variety of shapes and sizes for patrons all ages and abilities and provides an opportunity for engagement with patrons and collaboration with partners.
