We’ve heard it before: as our communities change, libraries have to adapt to support their communities. But how do you do that? For Effingham Public Library, this meant developing a new organizational structure to grow and thrive. Join us as we share our journey – transforming a traditional ‘inward looking’ library staff into a staff that looks outward into the community. Learn how to prepare your library board and staff for the changes and challenges ahead while staying focused on the larger goal. Gain insights into common pitfalls that occur throughout a change-process and how to respond.
