October 15 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. PT) / Makerspaces: A New Wave of Library Service ALA Publishing

Makerspaces are taking hold in the library world and they are spreading quickly, popping up in libraries of all types and sizes. Makerspaces give people a place to pursue their own interests in building things, using tools (physical or virtual) and connecting with one another. Libraries have expanded on traditional library services to provide DIY/craft/make services, setting up spaces within their buildings and within their communities that allow people to do anything from building model airplanes to 3-D printing to self-publishing novels. Learn what makerspaces are and how they work from librarians who are on the cutting edge of this movement by attending our upcoming series of free webinars. Each webinar will feature a panel of staff, administration, and patrons from one of the libraries that have implemented a makerspace. They'll talk about how their makerspace concept began, how it was designed and how it was implemented. You'll learn about the maker movement in general, the role libraries are playing specifically, and get ideas about how you can get involved and start a makerspace in your library!

October 15 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. PT) / Juggling 101: Managing Multiple Priorities InSync Webinar

October 16 (11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. PT) / Incubate leadership @ your library WebJunction Webinar

Effective leadership in a library community is not performed by any one person. Instead, it is a collective act of many players contributing their toolset of complementary and evolving skills. Leadership "incubates" best in an environment nurtured by collaborative and continuous learning; it often grows accidentally, sometimes unbeknownst to the leader-to-be. Through peer mentoring and other methods, explore ways to create a generative space that nourishes the infectious qualities of leadership. Develop a network of seasoned learners who will incubate leadership, both within your library and in support of the broader community, collaboratively building and leading a rich and fulfilling learning organization.

October 17 (12:00-1:00 p.m. PT) / 100 New Donors in 90 Days: A Step-by-Step Process Nonprofit Webinars

We live in the midst of a "new normal." The current, unprecedented global economic roller-coaster and political uncertainty impact personal philanthropy. This new normal has led to many donors' anxiety about the future. As a result, people are not making new, first time gifts and are cutting their giving to some of their former charities-if not eliminating them altogether. Then, where are you to find the donors and the money to achieve your goals? Research shows that it requires 4.5 times the effort, staff, and dollars to acquire a new donor as it does to keep one. Yet some nonprofits seem to spend more time and energy pursuing a new giver than making the effort to keep the old friend happy and engaged.
