We are trying something new. Staff Pickles is an initiative to boost our readers’ advisory online in a way that’s quirky, individual, and fun.
- Great Stuff – EPL Makes It Personal!
- EPL Staff picks
- EPL Great Stuff Crew (Diego, Nancy, Sean, Jey, Amanda)
We corralled a small group of likely candidates in order to make the project manageable. This initial team of pickers had a workshop to figure out how it might work. The name “Staff Pickles” is courtesy of Malcolm.
Simone made some fab graphics that have a Christchurchy flavour. If you are a fan of local street art, you’ll recognise some of the backgrounds.
Each Staff Pickles page introduces the person and their reading interests, and includes:
- Blog posts
- Favourite books
The page includes a Readers Advisory form so customers can contact the Pickles for advice or ideas.
Pickles in action
We will be making and sharing booklists, writing book reviews, offering reading tips, looking at hot stuff coming up.
