The Common Read program at Minnesota State University, Mankato created a collaboration of cranes across campus to help connect the community. We will be discussing how we, Library Services, connected one story with a diverse population through partnerships, promotion, engagement, and art! Come learn how we took the solitary endeavor of reading and added a creative hands-on component to increase campus and community connections and participation. We created videos for promotion and education using our in-house resources – and you can do it too! Learn from our successes and also learn what didn't work. Find out more about how we promoted the Common Read through social media: YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc.! We’ll show you how to use free technology resources and how to have fun with it.
