Imagine... the Library Coming to You!
September 04, 2012
Lee's Summit's John Knox Village is one of the largest retirement communities in the U.S. For the past year, the Lee's Summit Branch has been "booktalking" at the Village. A booktalk isn't a traditional book discussion group or a Library-To-Go. It's an opportunity for librarians to talk-up some of our favorite titles and introduce readers to books they may have otherwise overlooked. We take regular print, large print, and audiobook copies of at least 10 titles with us to John Knox. Library staff give a short overview of each book and then make it available for checkout. We also provide current brochures, booklets, and information on Library events for those John Knox Village residents willing to participate. Residents can return the books they check out when we return the next month. This service has been so successful we now "book talk" weekly, servicing two different retirement communities in our area.
Happy reading and discussing,
Lee's Summit Branch
