Librarian as Verb: Activate Your Rural Community

In this webinar, hosted in collaboration with ARSL, learn how to make "librarian" a verb, actively connecting with your whole community.

This event has passed.

Making connections and being an active part of the community you serve is especially important in small and rural libraries. It makes your library more visible and also enhances the quality of life in the community. Learn how a rural library director transformed library services over one summer, by getting out and growing awareness in the community. With the help of two enthusiastic staff, one simple idea grew into so much more. We will explore different ways to engage your community, spark young readers, and build relationships with families. Hear tips, tools, and personal stories about how the library implemented outreach services and created ways to positively impact the entire community! Learn how to make "librarian" not only your job title, but what you actively do.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL).

Presented by: Lori Juhlin, Director of the Hawarden Public Library (IA), and Chair, ARSL Marketing & Communication Committee
