PLA introduces new downloadable training kit for public library staff

CHICAGO – The Public Library Association (PLA) has just released "Time Flies…But Where? Time Management Tips and Tools," a downloadable training program for public library staff. The training will help participants evaluate the balance between their work life and personal life and understand their time management choices and challenges. The program will culminate in a personal plan outlining steps and tools for better time management for each participant.

Authored by Sandra Nelson, "Time Flies…But Where?" includes all the materials needed to present a day-long (4-4.5 hour) training program. The materials include formal learning objectives, a detailed agenda, an engaging Power Point and companion script, guidelines for leading discussion, an implementation plan for attendees and a final evaluation form.
