Public Library Accreditation and Community Needs Workshop - Online 

What is Nebraska Public Library Accreditation? What are the benefits of accreditation? How does my library become accredited? What’s a Community Needs Response Plan? Why does my library need one?

The purpose of Nebraska Public Library Accreditation is to encourage excellent library service in Nebraska communities. The guidelines used to evaluate libraries and their services are community-based, so libraries need to know their communities' needs in order to provide appropriate library services that meet those unique needs. That's where Community Needs Response Planning comes in!

In this workshop, Christa Porter, NLC's Library Development Director, will guide you through Community Needs Response Planning and applying for Public Library Accreditation. Public Library Directors, Staff, and Library Board Members are encouraged to attend.

This session will be recorded for anyone who may want to see it again or who cannot attend at the scheduled time. Registration is not required to view the archived recording.
