Building a Culture of Learning with Library Boards
Thursday, May 24, 2018 ♦ 3:00 pm Eastern  ♦ 60 minutes
Libraries that cultivate a culture of learning encourage their staff to participate in continuing education. But shouldn’t this learning culture also extend to library boards? At the State Library of Iowa, we say yes! Trustees can and should play a key role in fostering a culture of learning at their libraries—beginning with themselves. When library boards embrace a learning culture, they become more receptive to supporting continuing education, in policy, planning, and budgeting.

This webinar presents ideas for growing board learning into a blossoming culture that motivates board members to see education and training as a natural part of their trusteeship. This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries.  Presented by: Bonnie McKewon, Consultant, State Library of Iowa, Northwest District

Taking Community Partnerships to the Next Level
Tuesday, May 29, 2018 ♦ 3:00 pm Eastern ♦ 60 minutes
Community partnerships have the power to meet your library’s strategic goals, expand your reach and amplify what’s great in your community. You already pursue partnerships, but you can take them to the next level, or beyond! Help your community achieve its aspirations by creating partnerships built on solid relationships, mutual respect and SMART goals.

Learn from the successes, failures and lessons of real-world examples. You will forge stronger community-led libraries where goals and values are aligned, and collaboration leads to innovation. Presented by: Audrey Barbakoff, Community Engagement and Economic Development Manager, King County Library System
