Friday, January 30

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.
