Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:A Day for Small Libraries and Branches
Description:We are pleased to have Rosemary Cooper, Director of the Albert Wisner Public Library, voted the 2016 Best Small Library in America, come to Northeast Ohio to share her story and her knowledge with other small libraries and branches. 
Once quaint, the Albert Wisner Public Library galvanized support for a new library that narrows the digital divide and powers a roster of nonstop programs.  Rosemary will talk about how she engaged and listened to her community which resulted in 180 volunteers and the ability to offer 1,379 programs.  This was all accomplished through building relationships and establishing new standards for innovation and creativity. 
This program will focus on 3 key areas:
  •        Community Engagement
  •        Volunteer Management
  •        Problem Solving
Bring your most difficult small library or branch challenges and leave with solutions.  You will have an opportunity to network with colleagues in the afternoon for a roundtable discussion.
