January 11 | 1:00 pm | Keeping Up with Trends
(AZ webinar series for support staff)
Every library requires that all of their library employees "keep up" with the technology in the library - both hardware and software. But libraries are "changing" and - in fact - they are constantly changing! It is critical that library employees work with their managers to determine WHAT they need to keep up with and how that might happen. This webinar content will offer diverse ways for employees to keep up with their library's changes, and their profession so that they can stay current and relevant.

March 30 | 1:00pm | The Most Unique Services in Today's Libraries
(A-Z webinar series for support staff)
Although our libraries have similar services for today's constituents, there are a wide variety of very different services - some that meet local needs and some that are just unusual and represent very different ideas for serving constituents! Coupon exchanges, borrowing small pets, pattern giveaways, tool checkout, circulating artwork - are long time, well-used services but libraries are making way for circulating bicycles, WiFi-unit checkouts, self-publishing, business spaces to check out, intermittent access to buses outfitted for showers for the homeless and even more unusual services!
