Join Amigos Library Services on December 9th from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm Central for Know & Go: Tiny But Mighty: How Tiny Libraries Can Help Their Rural Communities Thrive.
All libraries provide vital services to their communities, but libraries that serve very small, remote rural populations have the potential to go beyond providing necessary information and access—they can inject vitality and encourage their communities to thrive. Addressing the challenges faced by rural areas can be daunting to a library with few staff and limited resources, but any tiny library can find more ways to support the specific needs of its community. Learn how tiny library director and 2018 Library Journal Mover & Shaker Allie Stevens uses strategic thinking to set priorities, creates new connections with stakeholders, patrons, and volunteers, and applies the concept of growth mindsets to library work to avoid burnout as a solo librarian.
