How Tiny Libraries Can Help Their Communities Thrive

Are you working for a library system in a small community? Are you looking for new ways to engage and grow your library?

Working as a librarian will always come with its share of challenges, but even more challenges arise when working in a “small” library. The Institute of Museum and Library Services defines a small library as a system that services a population of 25,000 or less. Allie Stevens, founder of the social media group Tiny Library Think Tank, believes in the power of small libraries and is passionate about their success.

Join this webinar to learn from Stevens about:

  • Ways that librarians in very small, rural libraries can help their communities thrive through addressing community needs
  • Forming partnerships with stakeholders
  • Creating vital services and activities while avoiding burnout and strategic planning

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from a fellow librarian, hear her personal experiences about working in a rural community, and take home ideas that you can implement in your own small library.
