This workshop is free to everyone.
Lunch is on your own.

Valerie Gross explores how “strategic vocabulary” links libraries to education. This new vocabulary revolutionizes the community’s and community leaders’ perception of public libraries. This presentation offers many examples of how changes in vocabulary lead to changes in the community’s perception of the library and library staff. Valerie Gross, for example, is described as the President & CEO for the Howard County Library System. How does using President & CEO change the perception of library’s and Valerie’s worth?

Presenter: Valerie Gross, President and CEO of Howard County Library System and author of Transforming Our Image: Building Our Brand
