Going Solo in the Library


How do you run a Library when you are the only paid staff? From books to volunteers, budget to programing, learn what it takes to prosper as a solo Librarian. Librarian Sherri will discuss her strategies to try and keep sane in a busy workplace. She’ll speak about purchasing books, passive and active readers advisory, utilizing volunteers, simple programing ideas, patrons and some budgeting. We will save time for questions, suggestions and brainstorming.
