  1. Adults Need Play and How Libraries Can Help!

    November 18, 2021, 11:00 AM

    Did you know that play is as important for adults as it is for children? This interactive virtual program with Dr. Melissa Cast-Brede from UNO will demonstrate how play helps maintain adult brains, bodies, and spirits. Using the work of the National Institute of Play, we will explore the seven patterns of play. Additionally, we will look at how libraries around the country are presenting their communities opportunities for play within these patterns of play. Participants will be able to explain the importance of play in adult development to library shareholders, and create methods for enriching play activities.

  2. Why You Should Ditch the Way You've Been Doing Strategic Planning

    November 18, 2021, 12:00 PM

    Many nonprofits struggle with strategic planning. Nonprofit Strategic Plans tend to be 5-year plans with vague objectives, over 10 goals, and almost no concrete action steps. Yet, these plans guide organizations and end up leaving them rudderless, confused and many times with a weak budget. We advocate that instead of creating a strategic plan, nonprofits use a strategic framework to lean on. What is the difference between a framework and a plan? While a framework adapts to change and guides through iteration, a plan is typically a list of inflexible steps. Plans do not account for new priorities/changed directions while a framework can support you in heading in a different direction. In our COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 world, this agility is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. During this session, we will dive into the Impact Method™, a strategic framework designed for nonprofits and was created as a way to break down your big audacious goals into clear, easy-to-understand components.
