Engaging Sports Fans at Your Library

Competency:  Adult (General) Programming

Sub-Category:  Demonstrates ability to be creative, promote new ideas and identify a variety of tools and techniques to create interesting and engaging programs


Who are sports fans, what would they like from their library, and what can libraries do for them?  Your circulation stats will likely tell you that it’s more than providing sports books.  The psychology of the sports fan is somewhat unique and can give us glimpses into the ways libraries can appeal to them, grab their attention, and ultimately serve them.

Participants will:

  • Understand the basics of what makes a sports fan tick
  • Be able to put on a program targeting sports fans
  • Know how to create a visual sports display that appeals to sports fans
  • Learn how to engage with local schools and their sports teams
  • See how libraries and sports are a perfect fit for one another
