"By providing passive programming, teens experience something novel each time they return to the library, encouraging them to continue coming back." ~ The Programming Librarian
It's not the first time I've mentioned this, but I think it bears repeating. We've been using passive programming in my Teen Room for the last couple of years and the teens love it. They know that each week we'll be offering something new, and they come in asking what we're doing immediately after school. And it doesn't have to be big or fancy. We set out coloring pages, word searches, and quizzes. We've also had some fun ones like creating a zombie apocalypse plan and drawing the idiom. The self-service programs keep them engaged and encourage communication and relationship building.
Here is this week's offering. How many can you answer?
