We Want Snacks, Too!: Adapting a Big Outreach Program for a Small Library

Jessica Swaringen, Undergraduate Instruction & Outreach Librarian, Lane Library / Georgia Southern University Libraries, Savannah, GA (FTE: 4,621)

This presentation will be about adapting a snack cart initiative from Georgia Southern University’s Henderson Library on the main campus that services 17,000+ students, to Lane Library on the Armstrong campus that services less than 5,000 students. The snack cart initiative began at Henderson Library in spring 2022, and for the fall 2022 semester, the outreach librarians expanded the initiative to the smaller Armstrong campus. We found that although what works for one large library does not necessarily work for a smaller one, it’s possible to creatively adapt such a project to fit a new environment.
