Round Lake Area Public Library

Case Study:  Round Lake Area Public Library– Adult Program

Scenario: Round Lake Area Public Library (RLAPL) is looking for entertainment for its monthly Sunday Sampler program. This program is geared to mature audiences in the community. However, the library tries to target the community as a whole and encourages all library patrons to participate in its events. The program regularly features musical acts along with an occasional poetry reading.

Goal: Locate an act that was suitable for a mature audience that is not a musical act.

Conclusion: After review, the RLAPL chose to spotlight Dale Obrochta in Family Entertainment for Library or Corporate Family Daystheir Sunday Sampler program. “The standing room only crowd was a diverse mix of mature adults and families. Dale’s show drew the largest audience this year”, said Candice Lutz, Adult Programming Director. The show ended with all ages laughing as one and grossing the largest audience in the Adult Program history.
