Empowering Mentors and Mentees Through Formal and Informal Programs
This panel will consider library and archives mentorship programs from both the mentor and mentee perspective. Panelists will discuss their experience with both informal and formal mentoring programs occurring within professional organizations and at different types of institutions, including archives and special collections, public, school, and academic libraries. Panelists will focus on a breadth of mentoring relationships, including those with staff, paraprofessionals, teachers, administrators, peers, colleagues, and continuing education opportunities with students. Discussions may include the challenges and opportunities that come from mentoring across generations, gender, age, geographic distance, and at different points within a career. Panelists will provide tips on how to assess the success of mentoring relationships, how to develop shared goals and understanding, useful forms and other materials, and how to make these relationships successful for both the mentor and mentee.

Let Me Tell You Why You Should Invest
With growing budget constraints, it is hard to find resources for capital projects, not to mention invest in new innovations to enhance a patron’s experience. Learn the steps to creating a grassroots capital campaign in your library from start to finish—identifying donors and community partners, leveraging matching funds, and seeking grant opportunities. We will use the Spokane Public Library as an example to learn how they privately fundraised just shy of $200,000 for the remote access 24/7 library in a year’s time. 
Learning Goals: How to identify potential partners, learn strategies to identify donors and project management
