1. Presenters Sarah Bleyl, Erica Cuyugan and Carissa Purnell present this webinar from January 26, 2012. The library is the perfect place to encourage connections and partnerships of all kinds—whether it is to create unique volunteer opportunities, to provide “atypical” library services, or even to make a space for new ways of thinking! Libraries have become hubs for many community-related endeavors, and moving outside of its walls is no longer just a trend, it’s a necessity. But building community means actually getting the community involved. It also means establishing the right kind of connections. Question: How can your library broaden its net of connections, and therefore, its value within the community? Answer: Through community partnerships!
    This webinar will give you some basic tools and the inspiration you need to take the first steps toward a successful library community partnership. If you are interested in finding out how to make lasting connections with local organizations to help you better serve your public, this one-hour webinar is for you!

  3. Whether you are a senior leader in your organization or you have a job with some unique responsibilities at any level, you may be thinking about what it will take to replace your knowledge, skills, and wisdom. And if you’re not thinking about it, you should be! The wave of Baby Boomer retirements is beginning, and those employees who know why things work as well as the way things work will be leaving our libraries. How can we make sure we know the important things they’ve learned over the years? Paula M. Singer and Gail Griffith present this webinar from December 13, 2011.

  5. Times are tough, unemployment is up, and libraries have responded by expanding services to people who are looking for jobs. But how about addressing the needs of people who are creating jobs? Entrepreneurs, especially the “new creatives” – designers, chefs, writers, landscapers, crafters, techies, and other imaginative problem-solvers – are expected to play a leading role in the economic recovery.Some people know from the outset that they want to start their own businesses. Others are “accdental” entrepreneurs, looking to self-employment when a traditional job proves hard to find. Either way, prospective entrepreneurs often lack the specific skills, tools, and other resources necessary for success.Consultants George Needham and Joan Frye Williams will describe what these job-creators need and how innovative libraries are leveraging existing assets to accommodate them. This webinar was presented on November 16, 2011.
