Today’s librarians face many challenges in keeping the library safe. While demand for library services has increased in a slow economy, budget and staff cuts have forced many librarians to do more with less—a tough proposition when it comes to security.
In the next episode of American Libraries Live security expert Warren Graham will lead a discussion on how to keep your library environment, staff and patrons safe and secure. Graham will be joined by panelists Elisabeth Doucett, Director of the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick, Maine, and Brett Lear, Director of the Martin County Library System in Florida. Panelists will discuss several aspects of library security, including establishing effective policies and training staff.
