With this grant, the Martin County Library System plans to develop the final team-building module of the program, develop and implement program evaluation tools and fund a speaker for its annual staff training day. Six other modules have already been developed and launched, focusing on communication, technology, event planning, collection development, budget basics, and people in charge. Kaleigh Trendell, the system’s staff development specialist, is responsible for implementing the Connect training program and measuring its impacts.
