Full Name: Tammy Gantz
Library System: Washington County Free Library
Event Title: Readers' Advisory Clinic
Top 3 things learned:
The instructor divided RA into four categories: Genres that appeal to
intellect, Genres that appeal to emotion, Adrenaline genre, and Genre for
sense of place.
Book talking is a commercial that should lead to increased circulation. Find
a hook, know your audience and do not summarize.
Book displays are a way to merchandise your materials.
How to implement: The instructor gave us many sources to become better at
Reader's Advisory. She stated we should practice with our co-workers. I
also hope to explore Novelist more.
