Summer Reading & Sunny Storytime- In-Person Training OpportunityDecember 28, 2023
Modern public libraries exist to serve their community’s needs. Since every community is unique, each library will have its own approach to designing and delivering programs and services to serve those needs. This one-hour seminar will provide an overview of a community-centric approach to library service design and discuss multiple examples relevant to libraries serving small and rural communities.
This will be a free, virtual training and will take place January 18th from 10am-11am. While this training is meant for rural libraries, anyone is able to attend. Register HERE to join!
