Building a LibraryAware Community: Making the Connection
SPONSORED BY: NoveList/EBSCO, and Library Journal
SCHEDULED EVENT DATE: Thursday, February 16, 2012– 02:00 PM EST – 60 minutes

Does your library need to build stronger community connections, but the thought of where to start leaves you feeling overwhelmed? This webinar will inspire you to kick-start the process.
We have gathered together four amazing librarians who will share the philosophies that helped them integrate outreach into their library’s DNA. They will talk about their programs that built strong community relationships, helped library staff members make incredible connections with high powered executives and helped a community get on board with using eBooks. Best of all, they will talk about how any of these programs can easily be scaled to your library.
And then we will move into “kitchen table” talks where our speakers will genuinely talk about the challenges they faced and overcame, as well as ideas they wished they had pursued (or still dream of pursuing).

Join us and get inspired by the energy, creativity, optimism, and leadership that have made each of these libraries successful.
