Would you like to learn about a simple strategy that will make you, your library, and our profession indispensable for centuries to come?
Join in an interactive day (lunch included!) to learn how a growing number of libraries are repositioning themselves as a key component of the education enterprise. Library Journal calls this approach "a 21st-century model worthy of study and consideration by every library in America, if not the world."
Come explore, discuss, and practice proven techniques to:
- Redefine libraries in a new, innovative way;
- Align your library with what the community values most: education;
- Incorporate intuitive, value-enhancing words into your everyday lexicon;
- Heighten your library's visibility and stature; and
Develop strategies that you can integrate immediately into your work.
