Presentations- Long Range Planning

Back to Presentations page

The author of Hennen's Public Library Planner provides a workshop for planners that want to learn more about doing long range planning in their own libraries. The presentation covers the principles, techniques, and strategies covered in the book.  The presentations includes tips on developing the planning committee, collecting the data, and writing and implementing your plan.

Hennen recognizes that while developing a library plan can be relatively easy, creating an effective plan is a true challenge. Effective planning does not start when an authority calls for a plan, nor does it stop when the planning committee presents its report; effective library planning is ongoing.

The presentation is intended for passionate people who want to make public libraries great. It is for library administrators, boards, and staff.  It’s specifically for the “library planner’s”—different stakeholders (the board, administration, council, planning committee, and so
on) who have different responsibilities at different points in planning. It addresses the roles and responsibilities of each for the plan and for its implementation. Library Friends groups, elected officials, and library users will also find much information of value.

Type and Length of Presentation:  One to three hour lecture/discussion session. Two day workshop for planners also available. See also Consulting page for information on engaging Hennen Library Consulting to lead your long range planning effort.

Room Setup details.

I will need a screen and projector that can connect with a computer using Microsoft Powerpoint.  I expect to be able to load the software and test the equipment at least a half an hour before the program.  I prefer a portable microphone as well as a podium.
