Purposeful Innovation: Idea Engagement for Libraries
Tuesday, March 15, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/purposeful-innovation-idea-management-for-libraries.html

Sooner or later, all libraries need to realign or reinvent services and workflows to respond to shifting community needs, but there's often a disconnect between ideas generated by staff on the front lines and the decisions made by management. Imagine a library where all staff feel empowered to submit, vote and comment on service and workflow ideas. To reach this ideal, Sno-Isle Libraries (WA) has embraced the idea management process in order to consider and approve ideas holistically, for cost, benefit and time, and before a heavy investment of resources. Sno-Isle Libraries realized that building a collaborative, transparent framework to support workflows, change, ideas and community engagement is essential to creating a culture of purposeful innovation. During this webinar, you'll gain a clear understanding of the "what" and "why" of idea management, hear lessons learned, and leave with tools to empower staff to lead from any position by sharing their ideas.

Presented by: Christa Werle, Public Services Project Manager, Sno-Isle Libraries, Washington

Incubate Creativity at Your Library
Tuesday, April 19, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 60 min
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/incubate-creativity-at-your-library.html

The Library as Incubator Project<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/library-as-incubator-project.html> (LAIP) promotes the library as a place to connect and create. LAIP has networked with hundreds of libraries who are working with their communities to incubate and inspire creative projects. They have talked with scores of artists, writers, makers, performers, and other creatives about how they use their libraries and how their libraries can serve them even better. In this webinar, LAIP shares program and project ideas, resources and case studies to turn your library into a creativity incubator. Take the workable, scalable programming and resource framework from LAIP and become a hub for supporting creatives of all types and skill levels in your community.

Presented by: Laura Damon-Moore, Co-founder and Editor, Library as Incubator Project, and Community Engagement Librarian, Madison Public Library
