<p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:.5in"><span style="color:black">Sooner or later, all libraries need to realign or reinvent services and workflows to respond to shifting community needs, but there’s often a disconnect between ideas generated by staff
 on the front lines and the decisions made by management. Imagine a library where all staff feel empowered to submit, vote and comment on service and workflow ideas. To reach this ideal, Sno-Isle Libraries (WA) has embraced the idea management process in order
 to consider and approve ideas holistically, for cost, benefit and time, and before a heavy investment of resources. Sno-Isle Libraries realized that building a collaborative, transparent framework to support workflows, change, ideas and community engagement
 is essential to creating a culture of purposeful innovation. During this webinar, you’ll gain a clear understanding of the &quot;what&quot; and &quot;why&quot; of idea management, hear lessons learned, and leave with tools to empower staff to lead from any position by sharing
 their ideas.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

 can serve them even better. In this webinar, LAIP shares program and project ideas, resources and case studies to turn your library into a creativity incubator. Take the workable, scalable programming and resource framework from LAIP and become a hub for supporting
