Introducing: Strategic Planning for Public Libraries

Thursday, January 20 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register for a seat in this one-hour webinar.

The Public Library Association’s newly-released book, Strategic Planning for Public Libraries, provides a framework that libraries of all sizes can use as a basis for their strategic planning. The content is supported by research conducted across more than 200 public library professionals and in-depth interviews with more than twenty library directors and leaders throughout the country. In this free webinar, author Joy Fuller will introduce the strategic planning approach outlined in the book and provide a sneak peek into an important step in the planning process.

Strategic Planning for Public Libraries is available as an eBook or print/eBook bundle, and each purchase also comes with supplemental materials, including reusable templates, worksheets, and real-life examples.

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the strategic planning framework and approach outlined in the Strategic Planning for Public Libraries book;
  • Navigate the book for various use cases and effectively use accompanying templates and worksheets; and
  • Start the strategic planning process by “planning to plan” and understand why this often-overlooked step is so important.
