Anyone interested in Circulation topics is invited to join us at our quarterly meeting. This group strives to network and get feedback on items impacting libraries. This meeting is open to Circulation Managers/Supervisors or a representative.
This group is by and for those who supervise or manage library pages, shelvers and/or materials handlers.
Topics routinely addressed are hiring and training staff. Maintaining library collections, working with other departments and the differences in workflow and priorities at individual libraries.
The 2020 Census is rapidly approaching and it will be very important for libraries to help maximize participation throughout Illinois. Our representation in Congress, as well as federal funding, including LSTA funding that supports library system delivery, shared catalogs, and per capita grants, depend on an accurate census count.
SPARK (Spanish Programming And Resources for Kids) is a networking group of librarians and other library staff members who are interested in Spanish programming for children. We meet quarterly to share ideas, tips, favorite resources, and more.
