2015 Librarians Workshop

“Creating our Stories with Effective People and Programs”

At the 8th annual CRC Library Workshop on July 16, 2015, Library staff members from all six CRC member institutions shared expertise and ideas with sessions led by library directors, social media and marketing experts and students who’ve helped market Meredith College’s library. The workshop took place at Wake Tech’s Western campus in Cary.

The theme this year was “Creating our Stories with Effective People and Programs.” It was clear that telling stories takes many forms and all kinds of effective people especially as libraries are evolving daily.
