Form submission from: Learning Reflection Form

Submitted on Wed, 08/17/2016 - 14:40

Full Name: Ashley Swinford

Library System: Allegany County Library Systems

Event Title: Reader's Advisory Clinic with Becky Spratford

Learning Event website:

Top 3 things learned:
- Motivation categories for different genres
- Excellent reader's advisory resources for each genre
- Book talk strategies and approaches and several book display ideas

How to implement: I will use these skills I learned at this training to
improve the quality of my patron interactions to learn more about their
motivations, dig into the appeal factors, and recommend read-a-likes based on
findings from the resources show to use by Ms. Spratford. I will also use
these to reach patrons in a non-verbal way through building displays and I
would love to implement the "Awesome Box" idea.
