Best Small Libraries in America: Vital, Innovative and Thriving
Join this webinar to learn from the most recent winners of Library Journal's annual Best Small Library in America Award, Southern Area Public Library (WV) and Pine River Library (CO)
This event has passed.
Library Journal's annual Best Small Library in America Award, cosponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was created in 2005 to discover and reward exemplary work by libraries serving populations under 25,000, and to showcase these best practices to provide a replicable case study for their peers. In collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries and Library Journal, we are pleased to host this webinar featuring the two most recent award winners, 2013 Best Small Library in America: Southern Area Public Library and 2014 Best Small Library in America: Pine River Library. Join us to learn how these two libraries have developed creative programming, extensive partnerships, and innovative and responsive services so they can identify, meet, and even anticipate the ever-evolving needs of their communities.
Presented by: Amy Dodson, director, Pine River Library, CO; Mary Beth Stenger, director, Southern Area Public Library, WV; and Meredith Schwartz, senior editor, News and Features, Library Journal.
