Short Title
Size Doesn't Matter: Transforming Big Ideas into Small Library Environments
Summary

When it comes to providing services and programs, the size of your library doesn't matter.

Description

If you’ve ever heard about a fantastic library idea from a super-big library and thought, “There’s no way I can make that idea work in my understaffed, underfunded small library,” think again! This presentation celebrates all things small and shares big ideas that work in small libraries.State Library of Iowa logo

Participants of this session will:

  • Re-examine the concept of “small” when it comes to thinking about your library
  • Learn ways to modify so-called “big library” ideas into smaller library environments
  • Gain practical ideas from other small libraries about services, programs and resources you can implement in your library
