Libraries do so many great things for the communities we serve, and we have the data to back it up! At the end of the year, what do you do with all of that great information? Do you tell your stakeholders all of the amazing things your library has done? An annual report allows you to close the loop on assessment, tell your community members (and your administration) what your library has accomplished, and demonstrate the value of the work you do. Creating an engaging annual report can be a daunting task. What should you include? What can you leave out? It’s hard to know where to start. In this workshop, participants will learn how to take an annual report from creation to completion. Through hands-on activities and group work, participants will learn how to connect their library's accomplishments to their organization's larger goals. We'll examine annual reports from different library types for ideas and determine what works and what doesn't. We'll pay special attention to digital accessibility and tools for creating your annual report. This workshop is ideal for library staff from all library types.
