Think about your favorite place to be – after home and work of course. A place where you gather with like-minded people and feel a sense of belonging. Do you realize that for many of your patrons, the place they love to be is your library? It’s their “third place.”

In this one-hour session, we will brainstorm ways to make your library their third place. Bring your ideas to share with others. What works for you – and why? What would you like to try but aren’t quite sure how to go about it? Maybe you’ll even want to interview a few of your “regulars” and see why your library is their third place – then come and share the joy with us!
