2. It’s the space between the steps
This tip talks about how often you change something like a website, program, etc. You have to constantly and regularly change some things to keep them “dynamic and engaging.” I feel like this is a tip I already use in my professional life. I do know that my webpage could use an overhaul, but I don’t think I am talking “extreme makeover” here, because I have regularly updated it. I know the layout, furniture, etc. of the Library Media Center needs to be freshened up…again, I have regularly changed some things, so I don’t have too much to do. I would like to make some program changes at school. Again, I am sort of always changing things, so no one will be surprised.
Some things have to change to remain fresh and interesting to users. That’s what I take from this tip. I am thankful for my school librarian schedule, because the summer gives me a chance to revamp the website, the library, and any programs I want to change. I think I would have more trouble with this if I were in any other kind of library.
How do you make sure your library program stays engaging to your users?
