Who are sports fans, what would they like from their library, and what can libraries do for them? Your circulation stats will likely tell you that it’s more than providing sports books. The psychology of the sports fan is somewhat unique and can give us glimpses into the ways libraries can appeal to them, grab their attention, and ultimately serve them.

Participants will:
Understand the basics of what makes a sports fan tick
Be able to put on a program targeting sports fans
Know how to create a visual sports display that appeals to sports fans
Learn how to engage with local schools and their sports teams
See how libraries and sports are a perfect fit for one another
