The Readers' Advisory Handbook

Product Description

Readers' advisory has long ago sprinted past merely suggesting books to patrons; it now encompasses many different formats and means of communication--working with patrons of all types and ages, in and outside the actual library. To help harried librarians handle increased demand, experts Jessica Moyer and Kaite Stover assemble a group of specialists who have created a one-stop resource for all kinds of readers' advisory issues. Here you will find a trove of solid guidance, including

  • How to advise patrons on all kinds of media, from fiction and nonfiction to audiobooks, graphic novels and even reference materials
  • How to provide services to senior citizens, teens and even readers who are incarcerated
  • How to handle author visits and book groups
  • How to enhance storytelling, even for adults

Covering everything from getting to know a library's materials to marketing and promoting RA, this practical handbook will help you expand services immediately without adding costs or training time.
