How do you create an active and engaging program that reaches new audiences? Collaborate. This program started as a three month collaboration between the Concord branch of the Cabarrus County Public Library and the City of Concord Parks Department, and has continued through this year. The Concord branch is located 1 mile from a nearby city park, which contains part of the Carolina Thread Trail. A collaboration between our departments brought an interactive story time to this park. As the story was read we walked the trail, with stops for thematic activities and hands-on learning. The local Soil and Water District provided additional resources, thereby expanding the depth of the collaboration. The program averaged 33 patrons in the fall. This spring the program continued with the added caveat of creating library cards and providing more promotional library material. There are plans to continue the program again this coming fall.
