Join co-authors of the Handbook for Library Trustees of New York State Jerry Nichols and Rebekkah Smith Aldrich for this fun and informative series! Each month trustees are encouraged to read a chapter of the Trustee Handbook and send in questions that the authors will address.
Before the event:
1. Please read the Public Relations and Advocacy chapter before this session.
2. Thoughts to consider before the program:
Have you articulated your personal “why”? Why the library matters to you personally and why you give of your time and energy to this institution?
Do you have a good understanding of all library services and programs offered in person and online?
Do you know who your municipal leaders are? County legislators? State and federal representatives?
Is it easy for a new resident in your service area to access library services?
Have you adequately funded budget lines related to outreach and public relations?
