Reader's Advisors Serving Children, Teens & Adults


Reader’s Advisory, the art of matching books with their potential readers, has entered the social media realm thanks to Twitter, Goodreads and more, adding new resources to reader’s advisory librarians’ toolkits. Readers are also using technology to find their next good read and finding the choices wide, varied, and sometimes overwhelming.

Experts Anna Mickelsen and Kaite Stover will cut through the clutter, introducing techniques and tools for reader’s advisory, and emphasizing an online approach applicable to even the smallest library.

Learning Objectives:

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify “go-to” online reader’s advisory tools for different needs and formats.

  • Understand how to integrate online reader’s advisory tools into existing programming efforts.

  • Use specific social media platforms to promote books and reading.
