Explore methods to evaluate library programs that take you beyond attendance numbers and surveys. We'll look at ways to gather meaningful feedback from both children and their caregivers. And finally, we'll share ideas for how you can use the information you gather in your program evaluations. This is one in a series of webinars presented by the Managing Children's Services Committee.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will learn to:
  • Choose evaluation methods that will lead to meaningful and useful feedback
  • Explore evaluation models from nonprofits, schools, and other spaces
  • Collect feedback not just from caregivers, but also directly from children
  • Use the information gathered to improve staff evaluations and to encourage staff to make meaningful changes to programming
  • Advocate for youth services using the feedback you collect

Who Should Attend

Children's Librarians and Youth Services Librarians in public and school libraries who offer children’s programming, and managers and consultants who are involved in collecting statistics and evaluating services. It would also be valuable to staff who manage children’s librarians or others who may be evaluating the work of youth services librarians.
