Here to Help – Serving Vulnerable Patrons – Training OpportunityNovember 30, 2023
Strategic planning isn’t just for large or urban libraries; developing a vision, mission, and strategic plan for your library will provide you with a roadmap to help you prioritize resources, navigate changing needs, and engage your community. This one-hour webinar discusses approaches to strategic planning that are sized for small and rural libraries and designed to guide your organization without the grief.
