LLAMA Webinar Presents a New Approach to Strategic Planning

Posted April 20, 2015 by freuland
Categories: Uncategorized

 

Strategic planning:  from groans to eye-rolls, the words alone are enough to elicit a range of responses from most librarians—not many of them positive.  All too often the experience is cumbersome and results in plans that are too long, too complex, and have little impact on work.  Instead of roadmaps for success, they are hoops to jump through.  The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) will present “Library Strategy with a Focus: What NOT to Do,” on May 6, at 1:30-3:00 PM (Central time).

Presenter Jason Kuhl is the Executive Director at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library in Arlington Heights, Illinois.  Management at his Library knew they needed to think beyond typical planning cycles, goals, and objectives to prioritize what truly mattered—impacting  the community.  They developed a way to help administrators allocate resources and put tactical decisions where they belong—with the front-line staff who are best equipped to make them.  Learn about how they created a focused organization where strategy truly guides all that they do, and about how you can bring that process to your library.

Do you have days on the job – even the job you love – when it feels like a pressure cooker? Faced with a demanding schedule, an impossibly long “to do” list, and staff and patrons and board members who need your attention, you feel drained, frazzled, ineffective, and less than the leader you truly want to be. On those days, do you wonder if there is secret skill that could make you a more effective leader, calm the chaos, and insulate you from burnout? That skill might be mindfulness adopted deliberately as a core practice to bolster your resilience and enhance your ability to face challenges.“Mindfulness is like a super-power that you already have. It’s incredibly useful for cultivating your leadership ability, no matter what stage you are in your career,” according to Kim Nicol, creator of 5 Mindful Minutes Meditation Program (www.5mindfulminutes.com).

Enter the LLAMA Career Institute’s program, Mind Over Matter: Sustainable Success for Library Leaders, which will feature Kim Nicol and be offered on Friday, June 26, 2015, from 1 to 5 p.m. Sponsored by the Library Leadership and Management Association’s (LLAMA) New Professionals Section and Human Resources Section’s Career Institute Planning Committee, this will be the first LLAMA career institute to be offered at an ALA Annual Conference.

An advocate and supporter of libraries and librarians, Nicol will lead this half-day interactive workshop outlining mindfulness and how it can enrich a career while guiding participants through a series of concepts and practical tools to help increase focus, mental clarity, efficiency, and overall job satisfaction. Based in San Francisco, Nicol (www.kimnicol.com) has traveled worldwide to lead retreats, continuing education classes, corporate trainings, and workshops. Nicol, a former lawyer, has developed programming to sustain developing careers of lawyers, tech entrepreneurs, data scientists, and other creative thinkers.

The institute will cover the basics of mindfulness and meditation and the relationship to leadership at the individual level as well as within organizations and professional communities. Nicol will demonstrate how to build a framework for practicing mindfulness in your life and work on a day-to-day basis. Guided exercises will allow participants to experience meditation, build a framework for practicing mindfulness, and learn how to turn inspiration into action. The workshop will feature interactive components and facilitated discussions and participants will be able to develop a personal action plan.

Participants in this workshop will learn about practical tools and how to utilize mindfulness training to amplify their strengths and to build a balanced and healthy career.  The workshop will:

  • Introduce participant to the concepts and framework of “Mindfulness, Leadership, and Career”;
  • Prompt participants to reflect on their own experiences and engage with other participants through practical tools and exercises they can integrate into their work/life management;
  • Allow participants to gain personal insights into their own leadership skills and walk away with a custom action plan with next steps to take; and
  • Enable discussion with a world-class mindfulness coach on ways to improve work/life balance, mental clarity, energy, and resilience.

The LLAMA Career Institute is open to all and is relevant to LIS students and to professional librarians and paraprofessionals at any career stage.

Six Recipients Selected for the 2015 AIA/ALA Library Building Awards

Posted April 6, 2015 by freuland
Categories: ALA Updates, Awards, Buildings and Equipment, LLAMA Sections, LLAMA Updates, News

The American Library Association (ALA) and The American Institute of Architects (AIA) selected six recipients to receive the 2015 AIA/ALA Library Building Awards. The awards, managed by the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA), a division of ALA, and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), encourage excellence in the architectural design and planning of libraries and recognize accomplishments in library architecture.

As the traditional role of libraries evolves, the designs of these community spaces have changed to reflect the needs of the surrounding residence, as represented by the recipients of the AIA/ALA Library Building Awards:

Cedar Rapids Public Library; Cedar Rapids, Iowa
OPN Architects

Designed to LEED Platinum requirements, the building features abundant natural light, a geothermal system, and daylight harvesting strategies that minimize the building’s energy use. The green roof and use of permeable pavers across the site allow the building to retain 90% of all annual rainfall on site in underground storm water collection chambers. Inside, a spacious two-story lobby brings together all of the core patron services in a hub and spoke system. A motion-activated light wall dramatically highlights the monumental stair. Out are the imposing book stacks, the massive circulation desk and the security systems at the doors; in are shelves capped at 69 inches tall (48 inches in the children’s department), friendly checkout kiosks scattered throughout the building and a busy café / coffee shop. A 24,000-square-foot publicly accessible green roof is a prime spot for library programs and community events.

Claire T. Carney Library Addition & Renovation, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, North Dartmouth, MA
designLAB architects; Associate Architect Austin Architects

The dramatic transformation of the 170,000-square-foot Mid-Century Modern academic library at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (UMD) was accomplished in less than two years while it remained in full operation. The library was originally conceived by Paul Rudolph as the centerpiece of his visionary utopian commuter college, which was built in its entirety between 1962 and 1974. Once celebrated as one of the best Brutalist buildings of its time, the library since proved grossly dysfunctional, underserving the University’s current pedagogic objectives. UMD and the dean undertook a radical re-planning of the entire 5-story building to create an “intellectual and scholarly hub” for the campus. With half of the collections relocated to basement storage, the creation of a wide variety of new service and collaborative work spaces and the addition of a glass enclosed “campus living room”, the Carney Library is now the most popular place on campus, as evidenced by a gate count that has tripled.

Hillary Rodham Clinton Children’s Library and Learning Center; Little Rock, AR
Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects

This community embedded, supportive learning center offers not only books and performance space, but also a teaching kitchen, greenhouse, vegetable garden, and an arboretum that allow children to cultivate, harvest, prepare meals, and sell produce in a planned farmer’s market.. It is the state’s first library holistically imagined as a children’s education destination. The lobby’s smart monitors display real time water and energy consumption. Mechanical and structural systems are purposefully exposed so operations and construction methods can be discussed. While this library exceeded expectations by achieving LEED Gold, the true measure of success beyond points is the neighborhood’s feel, which shifted from dangerous to full of life and pride. The library is a safe zone and home to a sustainable-minded community.

Mission Branch Library; San Antonio
Muñoz and Company

Since its opening, this library has been a catalyst and model for new development along the newly formed Roosevelt Avenue Corridor district. The library is a single story building with a 30-foot tall reading room and a shed roof that is covered with locally made barrel vaulted clay tiles. Visitors enter the new library through a pair of over-sized copper clad doors that are embossed with a decorative pattern pulled from Mission San Jose. The L shaped lobby is capped by three brick bovedas which are cross vaults built without centering by local craftsmen. The interior brick bovedas are mirrored on the exterior roof of the lobby volume with stucco clad vaults each with a skylight illuminating the lobby space below. The exterior of the building features a locally sourced San Saba Sandstone wainscot that wraps the entire perimeter of the white stucco walls. These materials reference the materials found on the adjacent Mission San Jose and convey the cultural history of the site. The New Mission Library was designed and built to LEED Silver Certification standards.

Slover Library; Norfolk, VA
Newman Architects with Tymoff + Moss

The new public Slover Library is a restoration of the 115-year-old Seaboard building (a former courthouse and city hall), a new seven-story glass walled addition, and a renovation of an adjacent commercial building, the Selden Arcade. Seaboard’s interior cortile, a central court surrounded by an arcade and a ring of enclosed rooms, is mirrored in the design of the glass addition. New arched openings along the western wall of the Seaboard building open to the new space making Seaboard’s interior accessible to library patrons. Natural light weaves through the new building to unite an interior realm with the exterior public realm of the city. The library embodies the principal roles of today’s library: as a treasure house for the region’s history and artifacts, as a portal to digital access, and as a community gathering place for the diverse citizenry of Norfolk. Slover Library reflects a synthesis of the old and new: the solidity of the restored masonry Seaboard and the transparency and porosity of the addition.

Vancouver Community Library; Vancouver, WA
The Miller Hull Partnership

This new five-story urban public library redefines what a library can be by not only increasing services with a larger facility, but in playing a central role in the resurgence of a city’s commercial core. A ‘drawer full of knowledge’ metaphorically describes the design concept, with a dramatic multi-story glass atrium serving as an open drawer exposing the library’s contents and encouraging exploration. Way finding to the collection is integrated into an adventurous stair and graphic ‘knowledge wall’, immersing patrons in the experience of using and navigating the building. A structural system with large open areas and raised floor allow for easily rearranged spaces. Material selections such as glass, concrete and terracotta rain screen link between new and historic neighborhoods, while offsetting regional climate realities of rain and overcast days. The LEED Gold library provides performance efficiency and is an inherently adaptable structure that represents a holistic approach to sustainability addressing changing demands with regard to environmental, social, and educational functions far into the future.

The jury for the 2015 AIA/ALA Library Building Awards includes: Christine Verbitzki, AIA (Chair), GUND Partnership; Drew Harrington, University of Portland; James Richärd, AIA, richärd+bauer; Clyde Scoles, Toledo Public Library; Doug Stieve, AIA, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc. and John F. Szabo, Los Angeles Public Library
