School’s (almost) out for summer and it’s time to add a few more titles to that summer reading list with these new and upcoming books. With this webinar we’ll help a young woman navigate the complicated politics of a fairy kingdom, make up with our handsome best friend while struggling to survive in the wilderness, get punished for our prankster ways through a summer job at a food truck with an uptight classmate, and decide if we can trust a mysterious stranger while hunting down murderous mermaids. All that and much, much more!

Libraries that cultivate a culture of learning encourage their staff to participate in continuing education. But shouldn't this learning culture also extend to library boards? At the State Library of Iowa, we say yes! Trustees can and should play a key role in fostering a culture of learning at their libraries—beginning with themselves. When library boards embrace a learning culture, they become more receptive to supporting continuing education, in policy, planning, and budgeting. This webinar presents ideas for growing board learning into a blossoming culture that motivates board members to see education and training as a natural part of their trusteeship.
