KEYNOTE – REINVENTING YOUR LIBRARY FOR 2010: A DIALOGUE IN THREE ACTS.
Be not afraid of reinvention. Some are born reinventing, some achieve reinvention, and some have reinvention thrust upon them.

Is 2010 a tempest for your library? Have you done everything right and you’ve still been cut beyond your worst nightmares? Are you doing OK and looking over your shoulder? Is life fair?

Join us in a dialogue on how to:

  • Keep up morale.
  • Be there for your customers.
  • Think strategically and creatively in a malevolent environment.
  • Grow your library, even now.
  • Enjoy your accomplishments…the good old day could be today.
