Eating the Elephant: Strategic Planning for your Library = POSTPONED In-Person

Due to a power outage, this class is now postponed. Please stay tuned while we identify a new date.

As the saying goes: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!" Creating a strategic plan for your library may seem like you are biting off more than you can chew. With the knowledge of how this living document serves your library and community, the parts and requirements for an effective plan, and understanding the services that are available to you for assistance, any library, no matter your size or type, can take on this important directive.

This workshop and discussion provides opportunities for directors and administration, staff, and trustees to come together and learn how vital planning is for library growth and development. Attendees will learn why a plan is important, no matter the size of their library, discuss the different processes libraries can use to create a plan, and what should be included in a plan to make it successful and acceptable to the MBLC. There will be an open time for conversation to allow attendees to share their library's strategic plans if they have one, as well as questions, concerns, and stories.

Stay for the afternoon session, Facilitation Techniques for the Strategic Planning Process. Please register separately if you wish to attend both.
