A free webcast series presented by Library Journal and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
Providing exceptional library service on a small library budget and staff size presents special challenges, but also unique opportunities to meet core community needs. In this new webcast series, a combination of live and on-demand presentations funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, winners and runners up from a decade of LJ’s Best Small Libraries in America award, plus other rural and small library voices, will share hands-on, real-world tested expertise.
Moderated by Kristi Chadwick, Small Libraries Advisor to the Massachusetts Library System, registration is now open for the initial presentations.
Registration is open for two sessions currently:
LIVE: Tuesday, August 25th @ 3pm EDT / Noon PDT
