As a library manager or supervisor, you never know what new challenges each day will bring. The OLC has created an all-new conference that will cover a wide variety of management issues and examples of successful management methods used in public libraries around Ohio and the nation. Whether you’re an aspiring manager or a seasoned supervisor, this conference will provide you with new ideas and practical solutions that you can implement at your library. Leading Libraries: Strategies for All Levels of Management will be held Wed., June 13 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Columbus.
Rebecca Miller, Editorial Director of the Library Journal and School Library Journal will kick off the conference with her keynote presentation on trends in libraries and library design. You’ll hear about what’s happening in libraries across the country and how they are responding to the needs of their local communities. Miller will also lead a breakout session on how to get your library recognized by explaining the process behind America’s Star Libraries and the Library of the Year.
The educational programming for the conference will include 16 different breakout sessions in four tracks: New Managers, Training and Development, Administration, and Management Skills. Topics range from how to provide effective staff feedback to using architecture to transform the community. The full agenda and session descriptions are available on the OLC website.
