Strategic Planning for Results

We now have 2 copies of Sandra Nelson’s Strategic Planning for Results available for loan from the NCKL office.  This is a fully revised version of Planning for Results, which was the first of ALA’s successful “For Results” series.

According to the ALA Editions catalog, the author “focuses on the essential steps necessary to draft a results-driven strategic planning process that libraries can complete over the course of four months, regardless of organizational structure or size.”

The books are available on a first come, first served basis and can be checked out for 30 days.  Please call or email Carol to have one of these mailed to your library.
