CLA Preconference: Relationship-building and Community Engagement [$] Affiliate Event, Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Moscone Convention Center
2010 (W)
Description :

Survival of the public library is about relevance, and the key to relevance is engagement. That’s our future. Engagement, with customers, community, stakeholders, partners, and staff, is about people being in relationships. Public libraries need to approach relationships with the confidence that we have something of value to offer, and clarity about what we hope to gain from others that will move our strategic initiatives forward. In this session we’ll explore the various meanings of community engagement, talk about staff engagement, and discuss what it takes to build relationships in both our outward and inward worlds. We’ll hear about strategies for building productive relationships with staff, communities, partners, and stakeholders. We’ll talk about how to rightsize our relationships - recognizing there should be a correlation between the level of effort we put into nurturing relationships and the value we both offer and receive. We’ll discuss how to seek out strategic relationships that align to organizational priorities, and practice having conversations to build relationships in which you might have something to teach, want to learn, or hope to collaborate. Please show up ready to be engaged, interactive, and appreciative of all that is offered, you contribute, and acquire in this daylong session. Our guest speakers are Susan Hildreth, Gary Wasdin, Luis Herrera, and Jan Sanders. Cheryl Gould and Sam McBane Mulford will facilitate the workshop.

CLA Preconference: *Uncommit: How Do We Stop So We Can Start Doing What Really Matters* [$] Affiliate Event, Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Yerba Buena Salon 01-03
Description :

Libraries try to be everything to everyone. The challenge is taking on new initiatives that require new skill sets when we can’t bear to let anything go. In Jim Collins’ Good to Great
framework, he says great organizations are clear about the difference between their core values (which never change) and operating strategies and cultural practices (which endlessly adapt to a changing world). Within a changing landscape of what people need from libraries, we have to figure out what we do well and do that, and stop doing what others are already doing well. We have finite capacities and must choose how to create the best outcomes and impacts for our communities. Our core values haven’t changed, and we need to find new ways to use our natural assets to deliver services, value, and make a difference. It’s about delivering the value you’re meant to deliver and not just the conventional services you’ve always delivered. Please know that this session will be energizing and affirming. You’ll leave with confidence around how to get to the why of deciding to stop doing things in your library. You will be able to talk about your decisions in terms of abundance and not scarcity, in terms of creating greater impact and not taking something of value away from your community. Our guest speakers are Jan Sanders, Kent Oliver, Jane Light, and David Singleton. Cheryl Gould and Sam McBane Mulford will facilitate the workshop.

Presentations and small group discussions will include such topics as getting started as a summer meal site; working with meal providers; recruiting and working with volunteers; promoting your summer meal site and summer programs; coordinating activities and programs to complement the meal service; developing new community partnerships to support your program; evaluating your meal service; transforming your summer meal site into a meaningful youth development program; and telling your story.At the end of the session, attendees will have the opportunity to observe a summer meal program at the San Francisco Public Library (confirmation pending). In California, Lunch at the Library is an IMLS LSTA-supported statewide summer

Zines in Libraries: Collecting, Cataloging, and Community [$] Affiliate Event, Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Moscone Convention Center

Description :

Zines offer a unique way for libraries to expand their print collections and connect with their communities in a time when so much of our work is going digital. Handmade publications that can cover any subject, many zines represent perspectives rarely covered in other print media. Zines offer a range of programming opportunities for youth and adults alike. Participants in the workshop will learn from librarians who have brought zines into their collections, as well as those who have used zines for programming and outreach. Topics include what zines are, the history of zines, how libraries are incorporating them, and ways that they are being used to connect with community. You will leave with ideas and concrete steps for getting started with zines in your institution, no matter your budget or institutional culture.
