End Time: 2:00 PM
Policies. Every library needs them; most libraries have them.
We all know they need to be updated regularly but don’t always get to that task because we’re busy. Or maybe policies seem kind of dry so we fall into policy update procrastination mode.
Join VTLIB staff for a fresh look at policies as a powerful tool that secures and codifies the institution as a welcoming community hub.
This will be a multi-part event geared toward trustees and also open to directors. We encourage trustees and directors from the same library to participate together.
Monday, November 1st 1:00-2:00: An overview/discussion to help reframe your thinking about policies and help you tie them more closely to the library mission.
Homework: Attendees will pick one or two policies to review and update with other board members and the library director.
Monday, November 15th 1:00-2:00: Attendees will share the results of their work and discuss the process with peers and VTLIB staff.
The sessions on the 1st and 15th will be held on MS Teams. The link to join is on the VTLIB website CE page: https://libraries.vermont.gov/services/continuing_ed.
