From decluttering to DIY crafting, a how-to festival can not only highlight staff interests and talents but also help you form new partnerships with local business and community organizations. These events are also excellent opportunities to highlight specialized collections, services, and departments such as local history and archives. We'll walk you through the steps to make this kind of programming work for a library of any size, for festivals that last a day or a week. It will inspire you to build partnerships that will continue to thrive long afterwards.
