Pat Wagner presents "Focus on Your Library's New Goals: Addressing the Real Life Issues of Your Customers" 

Increasingly libraries are adding programming, services, collections, and staff that address issues in addition to traditional library missions. The customer-centric model, unique to every community, means an emphasis on partnerships with other government and nonprofit agencies. It also means taking on a new role in relationship to community needs. Does your service area need support for economic development, educational achievement, community health and wellness initiatives, or crime prevention? What part of these needs will your library make its new job, and how will you make these new goals work within the limits of existing resources.
 

Pat Wagner has been a library consultant and trainer since 1978, having worked with libraries and library organizations in 47 states and Canada. She has been visiting Ohio libraries, regional consortia, and library organizations since 2001. Pat is also a frequent speaker at state, regional, and national library organizations. She focuses on topics that support library success, from personnel and supervision to leadership, strategic planning, and ethics. Pat is known for her practical and good-humored programs.
