Parkland has a Library Programming Guide that contains program ideas for teens, adults, and seniors. It also provides tips for planning and promotion, a programming checklist, and sample forms. Download it in editable Word format or as a PDF. Have ideas of programs you'd like to see in this guide? Contact your consultant!
Helpful tips for library storytime programs can be found in Secrets of a Successful Storytime from Parkland Regional Library's 2008 conference.
Parkland Regional Library participates in the TD Summer Reading Club. Library staff can access the online SRC Staff Manual as a resource. A Summer Reading Club workshop is held annually at Parkland to help libraries prepare for their summer programs. Further details can be obtained by contacting Susan Grieshaber-Otto.
TeenRC is an online teen reading club. Aimed at Canadian teens who love to read, participants post reviews, share their writing, and discuss their favourite (and least favourite) reads with teens and librarians across the country. Special events include online chats with authors.
Parkland provides a collection of program-in-a-box kits to help member libraries reduce programming prep time. The collection contains more than 60 boxes encompassing 40+ different themes serving the interests of children from ages one to eight plus a small selection of teen-oriented kits. Boxes are booked on a first-come, first-served basis. A list of available kits and the programming box request form can be found on the Services > Programming Boxes page.
