Where Will Your Next Event Be?
A live event can happen practically anywhere these days. The definition of what a venue can be has been expanding over the years — as performances have been popping up in parks, museums and railroad stations, to name just a few places.
American Libraries reports that Chicago Public Library holds regular storytimes at laundromats across Chicago. This is a great example of going where the people are.
Anne Ford writes: “Laundromat literacy initiatives mean ‘you’re able to hold programs at a time and place that really meets people where they are,” says Libraries Without Borders Executive Director Adam Echelman. “You have a captive audience, families return weekly, and it’s open all the time. Another thing is that most people don’t go to a laundromat outside of their neighborhood, so you’re working really locally.”
