Great Passive Programming – Secret Santa Reading Challenge

Secret Santa Reading ChallengeThe branches of my library system always have some excellent programming. They are constantly impressing me with the creative stuff their staff plans. This year, the Fairview Public Library is hosting a Secret Santa Reading Challenge. They wrapped books up like presents and put them under their Christmas tree. Patrons check out the wrapped book, take it home, unwrap it, and read it. Once they’ve read their Secret Santa book, they can fill out a review slip to be entered in a drawing for a Visa gift card.

I think this is an awesome spin on the whole “Blind Date with a Book” trend that’s going on right now. It’s also a great way to implement passive programming at your library. Even if your library can’t afford to raffle off a prize, patrons will still be curious about what book they might get.
