Program Ideas

It seems like summer just got here and yet, here we are, just a couple weeks away from Labor Day and school starting. We’ve been thinking about fall and winter programs for a while now, but haven’t added a lot of concrete things. “If you build it, they will come” does not always apply. In an effort to see if there’s interest in any of the following programs, we’re seeking your feedback. These are all ideas that have been on our radar for months, or even years. Some we’ve even tried in the past without success, yet we find ourselves unready (or unwilling) to walk away from them. One of the biggest problems reported to us tends to be scheduling issues. So why not build programs around the people who want them? If you would be interested in attending the following events or programs, please email our Director, D Hankins at: d@newholsteinlibrary.org or call 920-898-5165. If we have enough interested parties, we will contact those who showed interest and work on scheduling the best times to fit the busy lives of the interested patrons. Hopefully this will allow people to come to things we’d love to host, and help us put out the programs and services people really want!

You can feel free to respond about one or many of the following tentative programs:

Ongoing:

Books & Brews—A book club for adults, once monthly, discussing book selections over a pint.

Family Foodie—Our cooking series, but open to (supervised) youth and families

Family Game Night—Families can come in and have snacks and play games with other families. A way to connect during the Winter.

Book Delivery—For those that struggle to get to library, due to health or transportation issues

Podcast Listening Series—Selecting one current podcast and listening or discussing either weekly or monthly

Job/Interview/Resume Skills—Covering any part of

Technology Courses—Learning the basics of different types of technology in group setting (Microsoft Word, Smartphone tutorials, etc)

Teen Advisory Board—A group of teens that would help design and select teen programming, assist in selecting materials for the teen section, and meet and socialize monthly.


We’ve also confirmed a few programs for the school year including Girls Who Code for 3rd-5th graders and Girls Who Code for 6th-12th graders.
