Dear Library and information professionals..

I would like to know about the ideas of events which I can organize in my college library. 

My library is a new, growing up small library with only 200 students in my institution. I would like to attract my students to my library. Hence I would appreciate your kind suggestions so that I can help the young readers in my institution.

Thanks and regards

Here are some ideas of events you can organize in your college library:

  • Book clubs: Book clubs are a great way for students to connect with each other and discuss their favorite books. You can start a book club for a specific genre, author, or theme.
  • Author talks: Invite authors to speak at your library about their work. This is a great way for students to learn about the writing process and get to know their favorite authors.
  • Writing workshops: Writing workshops can help students improve their writing skills. You can offer workshops on different types of writing, such as fiction, nonfiction, or poetry.
  • Poetry slams: Poetry slams are a fun and competitive way for students to share their poetry. You can host a poetry slam as part of a larger event, such as National Poetry Month.
  • Film screenings: Film screenings can be a great way to introduce students to new films and filmmakers. You can screen films from different genres, countries, or time periods.
  • Gaming tournaments: Gaming tournaments are a great way for students to compete and have fun. You can host tournaments for different types of games, such as video games, board games, or card games.
  • Trivia nights: Trivia nights are a great way for students to test their knowledge and have some friendly competition. You can create trivia questions about different topics, such as pop culture, history, or science.
  • Open mic nights: Open mic nights are a chance for students to share their talents, such as music, poetry, or comedy. This is a great way for students to get exposure and build their confidence.
  • Craft workshops: Craft workshops can teach students new skills, such as knitting, crocheting, or woodworking. This is a great way for students to relax and have some fun.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. The possibilities are endless! The most important thing is to choose events that you think students will enjoy and that will interest them.

Setup a Digital Library using 'Open Digital Library OS' and keep uploading few ebooks / previous year question papers and any other useful material which will be helpful to the students.

Refrain pounds

Stanza hammers are a silliness and ferocious way for students to share their section. You can have a section smash as a part of a greater event, similar to Public Refrain Month.

Film screenings

Film screenings can be a staggering technique for familiarizing students with new motion pictures and makers. You can screen films from different sorts, countries, or periods of time.
Gaming contests

Gaming rivalries are an extraordinary way for students to battle and have a few great times. You can have contests for different kinds.
