    This is a pretty good idea book for any librarian and any library. It offers 32 different passive programs with variations on each one. Most of the programs are accompanied by a list of supplies and collection tie-in ideas. The book could have benefitted from some more consistency, but for the most part, it was clear and easy to follow. The programs were described briefly enough that they were not overwhelming but thorough enough that you understand how to use the program in your library.

The programs were described briefly enough that they were not overwhelming but thorough enough that you understand how to use the program in your library. It also inspired lots of other ideas and variations in our library. We're excited to start up some of the programs mentioned! I would recommend that it be added to any professional library collection.

    Useful ideas for libraries with limited budgets (which is just about all of us) and patrons that don't attend regular on-site library programs. These are the kind of activities that can be completed at each patron's convenience.

    Emily does a great job of living up to the books' promise of Easy and Affordable...Literally any academic, private or public library could use this. The book is primarily catered towards teens and school age kids, though there are some that focus on adults. Check this one out. It was very helpful and insightful, as passive programming seems to be the way things are headed.

    This is a great resource for librarians looking to up their number of passive programs. It contains numerous examples and tries to spark your own creative side. Even though I'm the only employee at a small rural library, I wrote down over half the suggestions as possibilities for the future. The organization by type of program was helpful.

All of the programs even included sample promotional materials and photos of them being used in libraries.. Some suggestions found in the book include a laid-back book club, a guess-the-cover contest, a display of photos of patrons with their library books while on vacation, a guess-the-shredded-book contest, a cooperative writing project, and a holiday greeting card exchange.

    Great programming ideas. I especially love guess the author, wacky library, and the month-long celebration of the 1980s. These ideas will be good for next year.

    This is a very helpful professional resource, particularly for libraries with little budget. I am using this book to help with some research for a professional development session I am presenting. I would love to see an updated version down the line.
