Making Budget Presentations

Creating and presenting a library budget is not just a matter of assigning numbers to line items on an Excel spreadsheet and presenting it to a group of officials. Library budgeting is an ongoing activity, with many parts and many people involved. It is a cyclical process of listening to the community, working with decision-makers, telling compelling stories about your library – and bringing all these elements together in a budget presentation….and then starting all over again. This guide to Making Budget Presentations will give you tools, examples and perspectives to make presenting a library budget easier, and to help make your budget presentations more compelling.
