Online Conference: Big Talk from Small Libraries

Feb 25, 2020

Attend Big Talk From Small Libraries 2020, and hear how the Copper Queen Library in Bisbee, Arizona, earned the Library Journal 2019 Best Small Library in America award! The Nebraska Library Commission is providing this free one-day online conference aimed at small libraries on Friday, February 28 via GoToWebinar from 7:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. MST.

Library Manager Jason Macoviak will be joining us to share how the library takes strategic advantage of being a low-income community that is also full of educated, professional retirees to deliver innovative library service where it’s most needed.

Big Talk from Small Libraries is aimed at librarians from small libraries; the smaller the better. Register now.
