We want to hear from each of you. Please follow this link and take our survey. It will only take a few minutes of your time and your help is important.
This survey is not just for library administrators. We are specifically inviting staff representing all library roles and generational identities to help share the future of LibraryLinkNJ and NJ libraries. Please forward this message to other colleagues.
If you came to one of our recent Stakeholder Engagement Workshops, there are new questions here. We’d love your input.
Survey Deadline: Friday, April 21, 2017
Stakeholder Engagement Workshops - Open to All & School Librarians
We invited you to contribute your knowledge and expertise at one of our Stakeholder Engagement Workshops.
Six free 3-hour morning or afternoon workshops were open to all members from every type of library, and one workshop was scheduled for school librarians.
The purpose of these workshops is to:
- Understand the interests, needs and perspectives of the New Jersey library community
- Explore the opportunities and challenges that are presenting themselves with an eye to addressing them collaboratively and proactively.
Led by the consulting firm of Maverick and Boutique, the focus will be on current and future trends affecting libraries and their users. We’ll discuss possible solutions, and your input will contribute to the creation of our next strategic plan.
These workshops are not just for library administrators. We are specifically inviting staff representing all library roles and generational identities to attend. This is a great development activity for both newer and seasoned staff members and an important opportunity to shape the future of LibraryLinkNJ and NJ libraries.
What’s in it for you?
The opportunity to:
- Shape the future of LibraryLinkNJ and NJ libraries.
- Engage with a top strategic change consultant, Abby Straus of Maverick & Boutique.
- Track future societal and library trends affecting your library or library organization.
- Meet and network with great people from across the state
If you would like to participate, please register to attend.
- The workshops are free, but we do need a headcount for our preparations.
Light morning or afternoon refreshments will be served.
