Save the date! Tuesday, April 4, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., at the North Kingstown Public Library, COLA joins forces with the Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS) and the RI Library Association (RILA) to present a workshop for library trustees, directors, Friends groups, and other supporters. Consultant Deb Hoadley will lead an interactive program on the role of library trustees in building strategic partnerships and fostering community engagement.
Now serving her second term as President of the New England Library Association, Hoadley is a consultant and trainer who has played many roles, including library director, Trustee and Friends’ President. Attendees will leave this workshop with a better understanding of how libraries can stay relevant by “turning outward” – and more tools for setting and measuring outcomes, building community engagement, and managing that “turn outward.” Light refreshments will be provided.
