I wrote about libraries and calendars in the chapter on Guides; improving access to our localities through information management. Here's the NYT Book Review curating "a calendar of must-know literary events in 2018, including new books, festivals, film adaptations, and more."
It's available as an iCal feed, of course, and can be easily added to your personal calendar app of choice.
This is a calendar mode I didn't discuss at all! Curating thematic, sharable calendars ad hoc. Lots of creative things libraries could do with this, and we don't even need to use our own strained event calendars to do so. Could do the whole thing in Google Calendar, and create multiple thematic calendars under one account. The Awesomeville Literary Calendar. The Awesomeville Library Advocacy Calendar. The Awesomeville Know Your Rights Calendar. The Awesomeville Early Learning Calendar.
Anyone know of something like this being done already?
