Library Journal’s LEAD THE CHANGE!

Coming to the Vaughan Public Libraries on Tuesday May 12th

This all-new 2015 Lead the Change program is designed to optimize the contribution and impact of the individual library staff member, including librarians, support staff, public-facing service representatives, administration, and IT/technical services.

Using a “flipped learning” approach, participants receive materials prior to the workshop allowing time to review, learn, and complete assignments at their own pace. At the live session, participants are then able to spend more time applying key concepts, checking their understanding and extending their learning through interaction, collaboration and workshop activities.

David Bendekovic, program developer and lead instructor at the Pennsylvania Library Association Academy for Leadership Studies, and his co-facilitators, including recent LJ Librarians of the Year and Movers and Shakers, will act as guides, immersing themselves in the learning experience with participants.

Participants at every stage in their career will benefit from learning their strengths and how they can contribute to their library’s success.  Each attendee will walk away with a Personal Action Plan for success, and also get access to The Commons, our online alumni community where librarians can share resources, make connections, and crowdsource solutions to their challenges.

This program with be co-facilitated by Margie Singleton,  Chief Executive Officer, Vaughan Public Libraries and Moe Hosseini-Ara,  Director of Culture, City of Markham. For more information, full day’s agenda, and a link to event Registration please visit
