Northeast Ohio Regional Library System - Event Information

Event Name:Rebuilding Our Why - For Library Staff
Competency:Communication, Customer Service and Teamwork
Description:Have you given much thought to why patrons come to your library? “They have to,” you say? Not so fast. In today’s world, they have a wealth of options to choose from when they need to access resource material, conduct research on a computer, or any other type of service or programming your library currently provides.
And, although there are many loyal, dedicated fans of your library, they won’t stay fans for long if your service levels have deteriorated.
In this nearly post-COVID environment, it’s natural to still be cautious. But when caution leads us to giving less than our best selves, we are letting down our libraries, our co-workers, our supervisors, AND our fans!
Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss why it’s so important to have excellent service as our goal
  • Dig deep to see what might be stopping us from giving our best effort to serve our patrons
  • Look at ways to encourage teamwork among our coworkers
  • Determine what it takes to provide excellent service in our organization’s environment – and what part we should play in doing so
