Something's Up! Programming Handbook.
Delaware County Libraries Association, Broomall, PA. Children's Service Div.
While providing information about children's programs primarily for Delaware County Public Libraries, this guide offers general planning tips and specific program ideas and resources useful to any county/public library considering developing its children's services. Special attention is given to program ideas and public relations. The former include suggested crafts, sports activities, games, creative dramatics, and continuing programs; the latter considers organizations, where to begin, what to say, how not to say it, working with reporters, getting pictures in the news, radio and TV, flyers, getting into your schools, and publicity outlets. Also covered are such topics as community profiles, locating resource people, and special collections, e.g., circulating toys and puppets for loan. The guide presents a directory of resource people (1977-8) in the Delaware County area, minute-by-minute programming checklist, and mall project planning tips, as well as a lengthy bibliography of professional books on children's services and subjects.
