Library Leadership

Starting an Initiative: How to Invest and Create Commitment

Have you ever wanted to create a new initiative in your library, but weren’t sure where to start? How can we make our plans fit the needs of our community, get investment, create involvement throughout our organization, and make it all pay off? On this show, we talk with Sari Feldman, Executive Director of Cuyahoga County Public Library.

Under her leadership the system received the highest overall score among America’s largest metropolitan library systems in Library Journal’s Index of Public Library Service for many years running. Sari served as Past President for both the American Library Association and the Public Library Association. She shares the ways in which she started a meaningful initiative for her community called, the Reconnect with Reading Campaign. It’s a successful example we all can use as we kick off initiatives of our own. It will also speak to the readers-heart in each of us. Thank you for tuning in.
