In this session, speakers from the Saint Louis Science Center and the Saint Louis County Library will share how their organizations committed time and money to staff learning. The science center will relate the grassroots of the institution’s first professional development day. The library will discuss its annual in-service days and longstanding perspective on the benefits of investing in staff’s professional growth. Participants will learn strategies they can use to gain support and then implement their own staff days.
