Thursday, September 12, 2019

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rockville Public Library, Vernon

Every library has a compelling story. Discovering that story, and learning to tell it the right way, can yield powerful benefits. At this workshop, you will uncover and hone your library's story, and learn narrative techniques to help you secure funding, turn your staff and stakeholders into advocates, and send a consistent message that "libraries transform" and are smart investments.
CLC's Julie Yulo-Medeiros and Amanda Stern presented this ALA workshop at the CLA conference in April, and now they're taking the show on the road. This is the first stop on their four library tour! Can't make this session? Join us at the Westport Library on October 8. Two more sessions will be scheduled for Spring 2020.


You will leave this workshop with an understanding of the structure for powerful storytelling, several examples to draw from, and an outline of at least one story from your own library. Register today!


Please use registration link above.

$10 for staff, board, Friends, etc. of CLC member libraries & schools

$15 for non-members
