Another Saturday, another assignment. Sigh. Who’d have thought getting a Diploma would require so much hard work!
At least I’ve finished the module – Deliver information, activities and events because that involved planning and making twenty minute presentations which no matter how many times you do is always kind of nerve wracking. I don’t know why people put it off though because I always volunteer to go first. Two reasons – the first being that I just want to get it over and done with and the second being that the teacher always gives the first couple of people a better mark, her reason being that by the time the 15th person does theirs they should have learned from everyone else what they should and shouldn’t be doing.
I also only have one more training session to plan and deliver and then I’m done with that module as well.
So brilliant ideas – send them my way people. This is for Develop and maintain community relationships. Think Outside The Book – it’s a week of activities at the library. I have to come up with four activities for four different groups that we’re going to have. I’m thinking kids for one group as they’re easy – maybe teenagers, we need to get more of them in libraries. What would teenagers like to do? Something for men – they never go to libraries either, what can we plan for a group of men besides putting a sports bar in there – maybe we’ll have a speaker come – a cricket player or something.
Put your thinking caps on people. I’ve got to go and buy a new kettle because mine leaks everywhere and when I get back I want to see lots of ideas for library activities for particular groups – they’ll just go for a two or three hours I guess.
Oh, it doesn’t have to be a group that never goes to a library, it can be anyone.
