Ten Passive Library Programs for Tweens
Kids ages 8 to 12 are often too busy with scheduled activities of their own to make it to library programs in the afternoons or evenings. For librarians who wish to increase attendance at programs for this age group, this can be very frustrating, but it also opens up an opportunity to offer passive programming.

Passive Reader’s Advisory for Teens
I found this post from Mlissinginaction and had wanted to do something like this for awhile now.

Cheap and Easy Summer Programming: Self Directed Style
Sharing a variety of self-directed programming options for summer months that can be tailored to fit any library, budget, and summer reading theme!
In general, I hate to repeat themes at the Children's Library, but this one was a no-brainer and lends itself to lots of variation. PLUS there's no way we would be able to beat last year's numbers without doing another Little Library LEGO Checkout Club (not that I'm a slave to numbers, but these numbers are…
Passive Maker Programming
I've been reading posts and discussions about passive programming- self-directed activities without a leader or instructor- for awhile now and found them very inspiring! Although I offer maker programs throughout the summer and as often as possible during the school year, I hadn't given much thought to passive maker programming until about a year ago.…
