    Join Kate Hall and Kathy Parker, authors of The Public Library Directors Toolkit, as they discuss  how to balance the responsibilities of being a director during a pandemic and three core areas of running a public library during a public health crisis and after. The four individual sessions will include library director jenga, personnel, emergency planning, and buildings.  Each session will delve into each topic, have some group work and time for roundtable discussion.  The sessions are intended for established public library directors and we encourage attendees to come ready to share their own insights and experiences.  

    Session 4- Buildings

    How do we keep staff and patrons safe when the unexpected happens? We will discuss best practices for keeping our staff and patrons safe in our buildings during a public health crisis and dive into potential future changes for buildings. Attendees will discuss short term and long term changes and how to determine the difference between a building fad and a building trend.

    Presenters:
    Kate Hall is the Executive Director of the Northbrook Public Library after serving as Director at the New Lenox Public Library and in various Youth Services positions in the Chicagoland area for over 20 years.  In her decade as a library director, Kate has been very active in state and national library groups including the American Library Association, Illinois Library Association, and Reaching Across Illinois Library System.  She has served on the committee and chaired  Director’s University, an intensive training for new Illinois Public Library Directors that went virtual in 2020.  She is the co-author of The Public Library Director’s Toolkit published by ALA Editions and the devoted servant of two demanding cats.  

    Kathy Parker was the director of the Glenwood-Lynwood (IL) Public Library District from 2002-2018 after serving as Assistant Director at the Harvey (IL) Public Library.  She has worked in public and private libraries for over 40 years in nearly every department and co-founded Director’s University.  She has served on  numerous state committees including the Illinois Library Association and has served as library trustee for her local library and the regional library system, Reaching Across Illinois Library System. She was the 2016 recipient of American Library Associations Trustee Citation award. After retiring in 2018, Kathy launched the kathyparker consulting firm which provides training to trustees and new directors.  She is the co-author of The Public LIbrary Director’s Toolkit published by ALA Editions.

    Please join LILRC as we welcome Dr. Dave Williams to speak about his recent book, Leadership Moments From NASA: Achieving the Impossible (co-authored by Elizabeth Howell, PhD; EWC Press, July 2021).

    About the book:

    The NASA way: lessons on leadership, teamwork, and corporate culture. How does NASA take on seemingly insurmountable challenges, recover from tragedy and continue to attract the best and brightest talent? Space exploration is as much a story of leadership and teamwork as it is a story of exploration and discovery. Leadership Moments from NASA delves into the culture of the famed organization and examines the leadership styles and insights of NASA senior executives spanning five decades of human spaceflight to share the lessons they learned from critical moments. How did they prioritize? How did they resolve differences? How did they decide what to do when no one had done it before? How did they build highly competent teams? How did they build organizational resilience? How did they fight complacency and rebuild a culture of safety and innovation? Through the use of NASA oral histories and interviews, this book shows how NASA recovered from tragedy and adversity, and how it developed a culture of competency that continues to attract the best and brightest. https://ecwpress.com/products/leadership-moments-nasa

    Through examples and case studies from the presenter’s experience, this mini workshop will introduce project management concepts and techniques as applied to e-resource management and collaborative collections work. After an introductory presentation, participants are invited to complete a project management worksheet and/or questionnaire and then explore the topic further in small groups.

    Questions explored include:

    • What is project management and what are some example methods and tools (e.g., Scrum)?
    • Building on traditional project management techniques and methods, what practices recognize that humans are doing the work, and honor human nature and needs and successful project completion?
    • What individual practices can each person do that builds trust, governance, communication, and kindness and thus enables successful project collaboration – especially across an organization’s hierarchy and areas of expertise?
    • How do participants imagine applying one thing from the presentation to their work or home lives?

    Controlled Digital Lending (CDL) provides a legal option for libraries to explore as they reconfigure and reprioritize access to their physical collections and future digital collections in COVID era and beyond. Patrons desire more digital access to works. CDL helps to preserve the power of the print; it allows a library or archive to recapture the significant legal and fiscal value in its collections.

    In this one-hour presentation, Kyle K. Courtney (Harvard Library) will give an overview of both the law that underlies CDL and the practical questions libraries must ask before embarking on a CDL project of their own. Featuring a robust Q&A to help dispel common myths and misperceptions, this is a great starting place for all libraries to understand CDL.

    Kyle K. Courtney is both lawyer and librarian. He is the Copyright Advisor for Harvard University.

    Students tend to engage best with material when they’re having fun with it. In this workshop, we’ll talk about ways that you can gamify both physical and virtual classrooms to engage students in more active learning techniques, especially when it comes to leading information literacy sessions. From simple tools like buzzers or dry erase boards to creating augmented reality games or choose your own adventures, you’ll learn about a wide range of easy to complex activities you can implement in your own classes.

    Presenter Holly Jackson is the Student Success Librarian at Mansfield University and enjoys using hands-on and/or gamified techniques in her classroom sessions, both in library sessions and in full semester courses she’s taught in First Year Experience, English, and Honors.

    Please join LILRC in welcoming David Magee, award-winning columnist and author of Dear William, A Father’s Memoir of Addiction, Recovery, Love and Loss.

    The last time David Magee saw his son alive, William told him to write their family’s story in the hopes of helping others. Days later, David found William dead from an accidental drug overdose. Magee addresses his poignant story to all those who will benefit from better understanding substance misuse so that his hard-earned wisdom can save others from the fate of his late son, William.

    With honesty and heart, Magee shares his family’s intergenerational struggle with substance abuse and mental health issues, as well as his own reckoning with family secrets—confronting the dark truth about the adoptive parents who raised him and a decades-long search for identity. He wrestles with personal substance misuse that began at a young age and, as a father, he sees destructive patterns repeat and develop within his own children. While striving to find a truly authentic voice as a writer despite authoring nearly a dozen previous books, Magee ultimately understands that William had been right and their own family’s history is the story he needs to tell. 

    About David Magee: David Magee is an award-winning columnist, author, inspirational speaker, and the Director of Institute Advancement at the University of Mississippi. He is a change-maker on alcohol and other drug wellness education and support and wellbeing. He helped inspire and create the William Magee Center for Wellness Education at the University of Mississippi, named for his late son and designed to improve lives with new solutions.

    Formerly a columnist for Newsweek, and a former daily newspaper and magazine publisher and a vice president of Alabama Media Group, David is the author of a dozen books including How Toyota Became #1, named a Top 10 Business Book of the Year from the American Library Association, and  The Education of Mr. Mayfield, a best book of the South (2009), and he has been a regular guest on CNBC.

     “A firsthand, eye-opening story of a prosecutor that exposes the devastating criminal punishment system. Laura Coates bleeds for justice on the page.” —Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award–winning author of Stamped from the Beginning and How to Be an Antiracist.

    When Laura Coates joined the Department of Justice as a prosecutor, she wanted to advocate for the most vulnerable among us. But she quickly realized that even with the best intentions, “the pursuit of justice creates injustice.”

    Through Coates’s experiences, we see that no matter how fair you try to fight, being Black, a woman, and a mother are identities often at odds in the justice system. She and her colleagues face seemingly impossible situations as they teeter between what is right and what is just.

    On the front lines of our legal system, Coates saw how Black communities are policed differently; Black cases are prosecuted differently; Black defendants are judged differently. How the court system seems to be the one place where minorities are overrepresented, an unrelenting parade of Black and Brown defendants in numbers that belie their percentage in the population and overfill American prisons. She also witnessed how others in the system either abused power or were abused by it—for example, when an undocumented witness was arrested by ICE, when a white colleague taught Coates how to unfairly interrogate a young Black defendant, or when a judge victim-blamed a young sexual assault survivor based on her courtroom attire.

    Through these revelatory and captivating scenes from the courtroom, Laura Coates explores the tension between the idealism of the law and the reality of working within the parameters of our flawed legal system, exposing the chasm between what is right and what is lawful.

    About Laura Coates:

    Laura Coates is a CNN senior legal analyst, SiriusXM host, and adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of Law. A former federal prosecutor, Coates served as Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia and a Trial Attorney in the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, specializing in the enforcement of voting rights throughout the United States. As a civil rights attorney, she traveled throughout the nation supervising local and national elections and led investigations into allegations of unconstitutional voting practices. In private practice, Laura was an intellectual property litigator with an expertise in First Amendment and media law. A graduate of Princeton University’s School of Public and International Affairs, and the University of Minnesota Law School, Coates resides outside of Washington, DC, with her husband and two children.

    Christina Hirsch

    Head of the Children's Department at Uniondale Public Library. 

    My Name is Chrissy Hirsch. I am a children's librarian and a nature lover. I grew up in Rosedale Queens for most of my childhood. My Grandma and Grandpa had a small container stoop garden in Queens and would grow zucchini, tomatoes and peppers. They used to fry the zucchini flowers for us to eat as treats.  We moved to Long Island and I started my own garden in my early teenage years.

    I love when I see families come together in our library garden and relive their childhood memories of their family gardens. 

    We hope to grow and learn with the community and become a family garden together.

    Tamelee Young

    Children's Librarian, Uniondale Public Library. 

    My name is Tamelee Young. I am a children's librarian and a garden enthusiast. I grew up here on Long Island and my parents always had a garden. I want to share and learn new ideas with the community. We can learn so much from each other. Gardening is universal. My favorite part of gardening is, watching a seed grow.

    If someone uses a wheelchair, or is visually impaired, it can be easier to understand the difficulties they might face and to support them. For those individuals with hidden disabilities, it’s often a different story. People might not spot the challenges they are experiencing and may find it hard to comprehend or believe someone with a “hidden” impairment genuinely needs help.

    Learn about some of the hidden disabilities you may encounter during your events, including Long COVID. You will be offered strategies that you can employ to ensure you are providing an inclusive program with suitable accommodations for all your audience members.
