Training on managing children's services isn't currently available in Oregon. We have books on library management<http://osl-lis.blogspot.com/2014/07/what-every-library-director-should-know.html> in general, but not specifically about managing children's services. We have the Focus on Children's and Young Adults Institute about implementing youth services<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/focusinstitute.aspx>, but not how to manage the finances, communications, scheduling etc.

ALA's Association for Library Service to Children is offering a free, four-part webinar specifically on managing children's services. Read the email below for details. If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Figliulo at 312-280-4026 or kfigliulo at ala.org<mailto:kfigliulo at ala.org>.
