Where in the World Is John Adams?
Angela Hanshaw | September 15, 2009
Looking for a clever way to promote a program at your library and invite patron participation? Perhaps you could look to “Where in the World Is John Adams?” for inspiration. The site records the modern-day travels of John Adams (in die-cut bookmark form) and not only promotes the “John Adams Unbound” traveling exhibition, but allows the public the unique opportunity to submit their own John Adams sightings. Want to see if John Adams has been in your state or country? Just look at the tags. You can also find him on Facebook and Twitter.
How would you adapt this idea for your library? Share your ideas in the comments.
