We advertise this program with press releases to two local newspapers, television and radio stations, as well as on the Chamber of Commerce website. Diane Kincaid also promotes the program in her workplace, and we promote the program within the library.
The program does not have a budget.
Diane Kincaid comes to the library and sets up her materials before the program begins.
Library staff and volunteers work among the children to aid them in doing the particular activity for that month. We evaluate our success based on the number of children who sign up as well as attend the program.
Other libraries would need to consider time to dedicate to the program, providing staff members to help troubleshoot when kids get stuck, volunteers to run the program, budget for supplies, need in the community for this project, and the age of participating youth.
