How can I go about partnering with Niles Library for an entertaining and educational community event?
The show features Mike Berkson, who is living with cerebral palsy, and myself, Mike's aide in middle school and high school.
I would like to schedule an appointment to discuss this venture.
I saw you and Mike at a Showcase a few years back. I remember you two had a great dynamic on stage. If the right occasion appears, we will surely consider your program. As a public library, a program like this usually does better with a targeted guaranteed audience. Schools have the upper hand in sharing your message in that the students who might not choose to attend must, and then really benefit from participating. In an open environment, like the library, attendance is not compulsory, and it is not a wise use of resources to book a program that would get low attendance. (Even though if they came, I'm willing to bet they would love it!) So, if we build a program with a guaranteed audience, which doesn't happen very often, we will consider your program as a candidate.
Thanks for you inquiry,
Youth and Teen Supervisor
