Building a Culture of Learning with Library Boards
Thursday, May 24, 2018, 3:00 pm Eastern, 60 minutes
Libraries that cultivate a culture of learning encourage their staff to participate in continuing education. But shouldn't this learning culture also extend to library boards? At the State Library of Iowa, we say yes! Trustees can and should play a key role in fostering a culture of learning at their libraries—beginning with themselves. When library boards embrace a learning culture, they become more receptive to supporting continuing education, in policy, planning, and budgeting. This webinar presents ideas for growing board learning into a blossoming culture that motivates board members to see education and training as a natural part of their trusteeship.
This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries.
