Strategic planning can be a galvanizing experience for any library, and, for public libraries, it all starts with digging deep and understanding your community. Today’s fiscal uncertainties challenge library leadership to put reliable information to the best possible use—for services, collection development, outreach, facilities, technology, fundraising, marketing, advocacy, and more.
This webinar will focus on what library leaders need to know in order to create and showcase multimedia spaces and services as assets to the Library and to the community/campus.
Library building projects leave a legacy for decades, with one chance to get it right. Those with access to a trustworthy expert who can explain the process in step-by-step terms will have the best chance to make their projects succeed.
A classic resource, Planning for Results has long served to help public librarians envision, evaluate, and respond to community needs with distinctive programs and services.
