Some ideas included charging for a tutoring service (that would be more advanced than the still-free homework club that most libraries have). Someone else proposed a business centre with faxing capabilities, computers with no time restrictions, telephones, etc.Stealing an idea directly from the Regina Public Library, I came up with the idea of implementing a full-scale film theatre as part of the library's services. None of the ideas were really grabbing us though.
But then our instructor came up and suggested a speaker series. Brilliant! Why didn't I think of that?
(Meanwhile, I had 10 Lunch Bucket posters sitting in my backpack at that very moment!) Another bonus of this idea: since I planned (or helped plan) for a lot of speakers over the past 10 years, this assignment will be like second nature. Yay!
