PLA 2014 Virtual Conference logoWho We Are, What We Do, and Why it Matters: Establishing Our Distinctive Sense of Purpose

Friday, March 14
5:00–6:00 PM

Learn about a simple strategy that will make your library indispensable using strategic vocabulary that conveys what libraries are: a timeless, economic imperative that merits maximized funding. Applying the easy-to-visualize “Three Pillars” positions your library as a major component of your region’s education system—along with public schools, colleges, and universities. Aligning with education establishes a distinctive sense of purpose, instilling pride in ourselves, our work, and our profession.
