Values


Inclusivity – We are a big tent, with room and respect for directors representing all types of public libraries, from communities big and small, at any point in their career.

Continuous Improvement – We recognize that becoming a library director is the beginning of a journey of leadership development to improve ourselves, our libraries, and our communities.

Collaborative Learning – We value the experience and perspective of all members and seek to learn from each other and grow together as leaders.
