About the Event
No matter where you are or what type of library you work in, you are faced with budget cuts and even closures. You need to prove the impact your library has on your patrons, students and community. This one hour webinar will help you prove your library’s value and impact by learning to gather the right kind of library stories. These stories you can use when reporting on the library to the news media, when asking for additional budgets from local and state governments and when applying for grants.
