A free webinar for Trustees from the New York State Library: Sustainable Thinking for the Future of Libraries, presented by MHLS’s own Coordinator for Library Sustainability, Rebekkah Smith Aldrich, will be offered on Thursday, September 8th from 2:00 – 3:00pm.
Webinar Description: Libraries must take an active, visible role in building sustainable, resilient and regenerative communities. Our future as libraries depends on it. “Sustainable Thinking” is a concept that aligns the core values of libraries with the “Triple Bottom Line” definition of sustainability, to result in libraries that have the capacity to endure, can bounce back in the face of disruption and bring new and energetic life to their communities. In this session we will explore how to infuse the core value of sustainability into everything we do, taking a whole systems approach to leading our libraries into the future and building our base of support among those we serve along the way.
At the end of this workshop participants will:
- Understand the urgency behind the need to think differently about our future
- Be mobilized to think sustainably about the future of their library and their community
- Have new tools and inspiration for helping their communities thrive
This webinar will be recorded and archived.
