Getting Unstuck: Help Your Board, Staff, and Town Talk about Library Funding

A webinar hosted in collaboration with ARSL and EveryLibrary to grow skills for talking about library budgets with staff, boards, and other stakeholders in your community and to secure funding.

Library leaders have been trained to "do more with less" for so long that it’s become a virtue. Though talking about budgets is a challenge, library staff need better funding to provide the public with needed services and expertise. If your budget is stuck, and your board, staff and stakeholders are having a hard time talking about new taxes or levies, this webinar can help. Please join us for real-world, practical, actionable advice on how to overcome local political problems, negative feelings, and unmotivated stakeholders, to move your library toward a more financially secure future.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries and EveryLibrary.

Presented by: John Chrastka, Executive Director, EveryLibrary; Lee Hallberg, Executive Director, Mancos Public Library, CO; and James Ochsner, Sutter County Library, CA
