Listen Up! Turning Library Agnostics into True Believers

Those who don’t care about libraries or believe that they aren’t relevant in the 21st century are exactly the ones who can hurt the future of your library. We may not be able to turn everyone in the community into library users (what a wonderful goal!) but we can educate them about the value of the library to the community. Learn how to educate the library agnostics in your community about the value of your library. Sally Gardner Reed, executive director of United for Libraries, will discuss strategies for making the case.

Grow and Learn: Library Outdoor Spaces SBEC logo

The Bulverde Spring Branch Library and the Tye Preston Memorial Library collaborated with the Master Naturalists, Master Gardeners, and the Native Plant Society to create butterfly gardens, wildscapes, and nature trails. Visitors enjoy the beauty of nature and learn to recreate these spaces on their own property. Children gleefully watch as butterflies fly around and learn how these creatures eat and what plants will attract them.

Presented by Roxanna Deane, Director of the Tye Preston Memorial Library in Canyon Lake, Texas and Susan Herr, Director of the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library in Bulverde, Texas.
