Library Technician Networking Event - 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The speaker for this event is ... you. Bring your questions, thoughts and concerns and get ready to chat with other library technicians. This is an informal sharing session to talk about anything the group wishes. Tongue-tied? Here are some questions that may get the conversation started:

  1. What is the biggest change your library made in relation to the pandemic? Do you like it? Do you hate it?
  2. What has been the hardest part of transitioning back to “normal” operations? What would you recommend for those who haven't done so yet?
  3. Are there things you wish you could improve at work? What are they?
  4. What do you find is the easiest way to pass ideas to library leadership?

Evening Event: 6:00 pm - Stacie Husmann - "Here We Go A-Wassailing"

Join in the fun! This event is open to everyone, including 2021 MLTW non-attendees.
