Pop Goes the Library
Using Pop Culture to Connect With Your Whole Community
By Sophie Brookover and Elizabeth Burns
"A breath of fresh air ... an exciting and essential book for those librarians ready to take up the challenge of keeping their libraries
relevant to the communities they serve."
Library Journal

You loved the blog—now read the book! Whether you regularly follow entertainment and gossip news, or wondered “Corbin Who?” when you saw the recent ALA READ poster, Pop Goes the Library will help you connect with your users and energize your staff. Pop culture blogger-librarians Sophie Brookover and Elizabeth Burns define what pop culture is (and isn’t) and share insights, tips, techniques, and success stories from all types of libraries.

You’ll discover practical strategies and ideas for incorporating the pop culture passions of your users into collections, programs, and services, plus a range of marketing and outreach ideas, technology tools, and ready-to-go programs you can start using today. Here is an eye-opening book that’s as much fun to read as it is to apply!

“From knowing your community to building programs and collections to trendspotting, you’ll find everything you need to know about libraries and popular culture in this entertaining read.”
— Linda W. Braun, 2008 President-Elect, YALSA


Crammed full of definitions, encouragement, program plans, and advice from the field, this title is an invaluable guide to pop library service for pop culture mavens and newbies alike.”

— Robin Brenner, No Flying, No Tights
