  3. How to Grow and Strengthen Your Team

    January 19, 2022, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

These shortcomings plague face to face and virtual teams, with the latter facing a separate set of challenges. This webinar will address both aspects of team management with an eye towards identifying “best practices” to guide managers in their efforts to build cohesive virtual and face-to-face teams that are successful, effective, purposeful, and resilient.

    January 19, 2022, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

    In this webinar, we will discuss how staff/patron interactions typically affect the level of risk more than the physical environment itself. When we are able to understand that the level of risk is determined by our approach and response to patron behaviors, it becomes clear that we need the skills, confidence and motivation to safely manage these dynamic encounters. Escalated patron behaviors, including threats, occur generally on a continuum rather than suddenly out of nowhere, for no reason.

  14. Promote Community Engagement and Challenge Prejudice with a Human Library

    January 20, 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    The idea of circulating ‘human books’ first emerged in 2000, in Copenhagen, Denmark, as a way to help grow community understanding of the diversity of the human experience, locally and on a global level. The Human Library® model seeks to create safe spaces for dialogue where topics are discussed openly between human books and their readers. Join us to gain insights from a public and academic library using this innovative and impactful model to create meaningful community dialogue. The Anne Arundel County Public Library’s Human Library provides an opportunity for people to connect one-on-one with those they might otherwise never have a chance to talk people who may have life experiences, stories, or beliefs different from their own. At the DiMenna-Nyselius Library at Fairfield University ‘human books’ are students, faculty, staff, or community members who have volunteered to share their life experiences and answer questions that address stereotypes, prejudices, stigmas, or taboo topics

  24. Small Scale ESL Programs for Your Library

    January 26, 2022, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

    Getting started with an English as a Second Language (ESL) program at your library does not have to be an intimidating commitment.

Beginning your journey with a conversation group will allow you to get to know your second language patrons. As your English language program grows, you can offer other group classes and/or one-on-one lessons. However, it is not necessary to start with a complete range of offerings. In this webinar, Claudia Ratay will share her experience and insights into establishing a solid foundation for what can become a very successful ESL program.
