Want to know how to work better with your Friends of the Library group? Tune in for a free webinar at 11 a.m. MDT on Monday, July 17, “Working with Friends Groups: The Good, the Great, and the Unfriendly,” with Sally Gardner Reed, Executive Director of United for Libraries.
Reed, who is also a former Executive Director of Friends of Libraries U.S.A., has decades of experience liaising between Friends groups and the libraries that they support, serve, and (sometimes) exasperate. In this free webinar she will offer guidance on building and maintaining these important relationships, showing not only how to effectively harness Friends’ goodwill and enthusiasm but also sharing tactful techniques for steering an ineffective or unfriendly group down the right path. She’ll also discuss fundraising, advocacy, programs, and membership development best practices.
