WebJunction Experience: Webinars<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/webjunction-experience-webinars.html>
If you are new to or unfamiliar with WebJunction webinars, you may not know that WebJunction began regularly hosting webinars ten years ago. Why webinars? Library staff frequently cited that critical barriers to pursuing learning were lack of time or funds to attend in-person training, and WebJunction responded with webinars that have since become a key component of the WebJunction experience, made free and available to all who work or volunteer in libraries. Check out this article to learn more about these webinars and how you can make them a valuable part of your continuing education.

Building Your Learning Culture: The Whole Organization Approach

Wednesday, August 24, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/build-your-learning-culture.html

The most innovative workplaces embrace learning as an essential activity for their employees. Since libraries are dedicated learning places in our communities, it is crucial that we practice learning intentionally and internally. But where do we begin? Learning is not one-size-fits-all for individuals or for organizations. This webinar, for all library staff, from front line to administration, encourages a broad approach to creating organizational learning structures. Learn how libraries of all sizes can map learning strategies to highlight the most impactful opportunities for staff.

Presented by: Jami Carter, Director, Tooele City Library (UT)

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/support-small-business-development.html<http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/support-small-business-development.html>

Economic development and job opportunities are concerns in most communities, and thriving small businesses are important to ensuring a community's economic health. Join the Small Business Information Center<http://www.cecil.ebranch.info/small-business/> (SBIC) Librarian from the Cecil County Public Library (CCPL) to learn how your library can be a part of the formula for building and supporting a stronger local economy. You'll learn how CCPL has developed the SBIC since its inception in 2003, growing from a shelf of books to a personalized service, with examples and lessons they've learned along the way.

Find out how your library can be an excellent resource for aspiring and experienced business owners. This session will cover the basics of collection development, classes, marketing, partnerships and more. Hear how libraries are not only helping launch small businesses, but as these businesses continue to thrive, they are able to give back to the community.
