Is your mind reeling with questions?

What is Web 2.0 and what impact will it have on my library, my patrons, and my staff? How do I know what to ask? Will policies need to be rewritten or formulated?

How can I have a better relationship with my Board of Trustees, and the Friends of the Library Board? What should I be doing to build a relationship with local governmental boards?

Why are programs so important to promoting my library? How can I use promotion to emphasize the value of my library to the community?

Cost – Free!!!
