Charlotte Mecklenburg Library revolutionized its approach to summer reading and year-round programming by developing technology-based tools to provide outcome measures that are meaningful to funders and advocates. One tool, part of a new strategic approach to programming that garnered the library a 2012 Top Innovators Award from the Urban Libraries Council, is the program portal, a cloud-based database that is accessible to all programming and management staff and facilitates planning, full-costing, and evaluation. A second tool, an online database created for the annual summer reading program for all ages, captures in real time the progress toward specific targets such as minutes read per participant and completion rates, tied into research about summer learning loss. The presenters demonstrate the tools and include the databases’ creators, the public services administrators who guide the content and implementation, and the communications staff who share these measures with stakeholder audiences.
