Has your library experienced a financial crisis? Have you had a staff shakeup? Has your library experienced a disaster that destroyed part or all of the library? How do you recover from such experiences? This workshop will give you the tools to work with your staff on communicating your library's message, ensuring your staff's well-being during times of crisis, and team building. This workshop will give you the tools to address the public during times of crisis, community conflict, or disasters and how best to position the library in the community and to the press.

This is presented by Terry Kirchner, PhD, Director of the Westchester Library System
