What is library outsourcing and how is it transforming communities?

Many community leaders don’t realize that libraries across the country are successfully outsourced. The benefit? Local control, reduced cost, improved service and predictable budgeting.

Join Library Outsourcing 101 to get the facts about why and how many communities rely on this type of partnership model.

You’ll learn:

  • The importance of quality library service - no more than ever
  • How it’s possible to reduce cost and enhance service
  • The difference between outsourcing and privatization
  • How outsourcing even part of library operations can have a big impact  

This webinar is complimentary thanks to the sponsorship of an ICMA Strategic Partner who will have access to registration information.
