I Don't Want to Adult Today: Children's Programs for Adults

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

More and more we are seeing adult programs that stimulate memory, overcome stress, and help with networking.  All of these programs reflect childhood in some way or another.  Storytime, coloring clubs, craft days, and even Lego clubs are just a few examples of programs.  The presenters will discuss the importance of having programs that bring proponents of childhood memories to the library and types of programs libraries can have.

Ingvild Herfindahl, Director, Dodge Center Public Library
