Oregon Reference Summit 2018 – Lightning Talk 7

Adult Summer Reading, presented by Nancy Peate @ Multnomah County Librarys

The library’s summer game has activities for reference services that have included “Find a map of your birthplace,” “Check out a magazine with Zinio,” and “Read a book by a Portland author.” The completed game cards indicate which activities our patrons tried and which ones they didn’t, and include a Likert scale for measuring outcomes. Come find out what we’ve learned about reference services by developing and refining our summer reading game.

Nancy Peate is the Subject Librarian for adult fiction at Central Library in downtown Portland. She has worked for Multnomah County Library for over ten years.
