Registration Now Open for Director Roundtables in May

Mar 29, 2024

Director Roundtables.pngRegistration is now open for the 2024 Director Roundtables in May. Multiple sessions are scheduled in each district across the state to make it convenient for directors to choose the time and place that works best for them.

In continuation of the 2024 CE theme Libraries are Forever, this year's Director Roundtables will look at examples of how library staff, boards, and supporters have shown libraries are here to stay: as partners in education and the arts, as valuable players in civic life, as trusted sources of information, and by designing great public places in cities large and small.

Join fellow directors to share experiences surrounding:

  • Sustainability: Going green with improvements to buildings, grounds, etc.
  • Collaboration: Working together with community partners
  • Teamwork: Positive interactions with other city services or departments
  • Programming: Making a noticeable impact in your community
  • Funding: Alternative financing options

Throughout each district, directors will have a chance to learn from their district consultant, network with their peers, and apply new learning in their library. Roundtables are designed in a 3-hour format during the morning, with guided instruction followed by open-ended discussion.
