The office has three new books.
Transforming Our Image, Building Our Brand by Valerie J. Gross. This book focuses on the way we market libraries and how to dispel some of the misconceptions about libraries. It’s broken down into two sections – “The What and the Why” and “Implementation – The How”. The chapter on strategic planning could be a great resource for the new accreditation standards that will be released soon.
Librarian’s Guide to Passive Programming: Easy and Affordable Activities for All Ages by Emily T. Wichman. This book explains how to use passive programming as an inexpensive way to showcase library services for multiple different age groups. Broad ideas include writing, exchanges, and get creative. Each programming idea includes information on needed supplies, how to make it happen, and evaluation.
Crash Course in Library Services for Seniors by Anne Robers and Stephanie G. Bauman. Many libraries have sections or areas specifically for children or teens, so why not do the same for Baby Boomers and senior citizens? Get ideas for how to meet the needs of these groups through innovative services and programming.
Call Shelia at the office 402-564-1586 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request any of the books.
A new dvd has arrived at the office. The dvd is “Personnel Policy” and is presented by Susan Sapp..
This will be a great help in assisting with the upcoming changes in the new accreditation process that will be coming from the Library Commission.
Call Shelia at the office 402-564-1586 or email email@example.com to request the dvd.
As always you can watch this with your board and submit a form to get CE hours as well.
