Developing Greatness – it’s what public libraries do.
Public libraries have a history of developing greatness in their patrons, staff, and communities. Now, more than ever, our work is critical as we rebuild after the devastating losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. Our patrons and communities need our services, programs, resources and well-trained staff to guide them through the process of getting their lives and careers back on track.
Our staff and co-workers need ongoing professional development and training to prepare us to navigate through uncertain times. Most importantly, we need support from library leadership, administration, and each other. The relationships we have cultivated with colleagues across the state are invaluable. They give us inspiration and opportunities for collaboration.
The 2021 Convention and Expo will continue the Ohio Library Council’s tradition of educating and preparing public library staff to develop greatness in ourselves and our communities.
