Libraries are constantly changing and adapting for many reasons. Managers, however, are not always sure how to help their staffs understand and embrace the upcoming changes. This two hour course is designed to help managers and supervisors learn strategies for a successful transition, identify potential pitfalls, and anticipate staff response to a pending change in the library.

According to the Pew Research Center’s 2015 Libraries at the Crossroads report, 52% of people between the ages of 16 and 29 visited a bookmobile or library within the past year. However, libraries often omit this new adult population from dedicated programming and outreach.

During this two-hour session, we will identify services and programming initiatives created with these new adults’ needs and interests in mind, comparing such programs to separate teen and adult initiatives. We will also design outreach plans directed to new adults in public and academic libraries.
