Recruiting and Retaining Library Directors and Staff

Pat Wagner
Library Trainer and Consultant

Expectations are changing when it comes to how long library directors (and other library
employees) stay at one job. How can library boards attract and retain quality leadership and
personnel in a competitive market? What is the New Normal in terms of director recruitment?
Topics include improving board-director relations, reviewing finances and job descriptions,
investing in support for better salaries and benefits, setting realistic goals, and being better talent
scouts for future hires.

Pat Wagner has been a library trainer and consultant since 1978. She focuses on the skills that
support library success, from personnel and management to politics, strategic planning, and
leadership. She works with libraries of all types and sizes as well as being a frequent speaker
at state and national library conferences. Pat is known for her practical and good-humored programs.
She lived in Wisconsin for seven years and still visits every year for work and pleasure.
Pat currently lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband and two pushy cats.
