Incubating Creativity at Your Library: A Sourcebook for Connecting with Communities

Erinn Batykefer and Laura Damon-Moore

180 pages



Librarians Batykefer and Damon-Moore describe how to help patrons use public libraries in their creative work and make the library a creative hub. They draw on ideas from interviews, program models, and approaches to service delivery and focus on using what libraries already have. They identify the elements of a creative library platform and the process of using them for creative exploration and experimentation. They address the role of resources, activities, programs, invitations, partnerships and engagements, and library staff in creative library platforms; the importance of community-led invitations; evaluation; and packaging and sharing the platform.
