Policies are created for organizations to establish expectations and provide guidance on how to handle situations consistently. Organizational policies help maintain order, ensure fair and equal treatment of employees, provide direction, and allow the employee to understand expectations.
NLLS can assist with identifying the need for a policy, determining policy content, and guide stakeholders on how to communicate a new policy properly.
NLLS offers member libraries support for their weekly, monthly, and annual programs, including:
Centralized planning of Winter and Summer Reading programs, sponsorship support and funding for prizes, program materials, and performers.
Members have the option to participate on a system-wide programming team that develops and shares program ideas and resources for the entire system. This team reduces the individual workload of programmers across the system and helps to spread great ideas.
Members can also bolster their local programming resources by borrowing our STEAM and Storytime kits.
