From Need to Numbers: A Hands-on Budget Workshop for Library Trustees and Directors

NOTE: Monday session is for District Libraries only.  Sessions for all other public libraries are offered Tuesday through Friday this week.

Every year NEKLS hosts a workshop for library trustees and directors. This year’s topic is library budgeting. The workshop will provide information and activities that can help inform the budget you are working on this spring.

In preparation for the workshops, which will be very hands-on, please gather and bring along  the following items:

  1. City Charter Ordinance affecting the library levy, if one exists
  2. 2010 Year-end financial report
  3. 2011 Budget
  4. 2012 plans, ideas, new initiatives, new or extended services, projects, “hopes and dreams”

This particular session, for district libraries only, will take place at Basehor Community Library, 1400 N. 158th St., Basehor, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Participation is free and includes a light supper.
