‘Bringing Back the Funny’—Using Humor in the Library

Are you ready to Bring Back the Funny?

As budgets shrink and every library is asked to do more with less, it’s easy for library staff and users to forget the joy that a library can evoke. As leaders in the future of libraries, we can all help bring a bit of lightness and levity back into our institutions. From appropriate April Fools’ Day website ‘hacks’ to videos like the ‘New Spice’ sensation, the sky’s the limit when it comes to comedy in the library. Get inspired to bring back the funny to your work, your libraries and your communities in this participatory workshop.

Join LILRC on Friday, May 17th at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library from 10:00AM-12:00PM with guest speaker Jennifer Koerber.

About Jennifer: Jennifer Koerber is the Web Services Librarian at the Boston Public Library, and an independent trainer and speaker in emerging technologies and the social web.
