How Rude! The Price of Incivility in the Workplace

We all want to come to work and be treated with kindness and respect. However, studies have found that 98% of us have experienced slights, insensitivities and rude behavior in our workplace. The effects of incivility can lead to a loss in staff creativity, deterioration in team spirit and may result in patrons turning away from the library.

Come learn tactics staff can use to minimize the effects of rudeness on performance and well-being and strategies managers can use to keep their own behavior in check and to foster civility in others.

No registration is required for this webinar! The session is offered via Adobe Connect. You can access the classroom via the CSL in Session website listed below.

Receptive to Race: Normalizing the Discussion of Race with Children in Libraries

Research shows that children notice race at a very young age, and often draw erroneous conclusions if no one speaks to them about it. With a focus on story time, programming, collection development and user services, we will discuss and model ways librarians can talk about race and racism in age appropriate ways with children.

No registration is required! The session will be offered via Adobe Connect. You can access the classroom via the CSL in Session website listed below.
