Wednesday, September 22, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Professional Development Alliance

Develop leadership at every level of your library after hearing the experiences of two veterans in the field in this practical and inspiring session. Former library director Maxine Bleiweis found ways to open up opportunities to all staff members through daily practices that helped staff become their best and step forward in the library, the community and the profession. Kate Byroade went from shelver to library director to statewide leader with the encouragement of wise supervisors and an adventuresome spirit. You’ll come away with ideas to put immediately into action and a plan for a longer strategy.
