Start a Seed Library and Watch Your Community Grow! – Training OpportunityDecember 8, 2023
Becoming a Community-Centric Library – Training OpportunityDecember 18, 2023
The Writing and Implementing Library Policies and Procedures training has been moved to January 16th at 10 am due to extenuating circumstances. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
Library policies assist staff in making day-to-day decisions. Policies grow out of, and give definition to, the library’s mission in the community, and they provide the basis for consistent operational procedures. This one-hour webinar describes the importance of clear policies and procedures and how to develop them for your library to support successful library operations.
This will be a free, virtual training and will take place January 16th from 10am-11am. While this training is meant for rural libraries, anyone is able to attend. Register HERE to join!
