First Tuesdays

First Tuesdays

First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.

Next Session

Raising Your Library's Community Profile, presented by Amber Williams and Kris Barnes, Spokane County Library District, April 4, 2017, 9:00 AM PACIFIC

Raising visibility means raising relevancy. As part of ALA's Libraries Transform initiative, Spokane County Library District spent the past two years doing just this by turning outward to their communities. We will discuss how this community engagement has changed day-to-day job functions, strategies for making the time to be present in your community and our best practices to implementing an engaged community focus gained from wins and fails as we embrace the idea that a library that supports its community has a community that supports its library.

We will be discussing the tool “Reaction to Change Quiz” in this webinar so feel free to take the quiz ahead of time.
