Building Success Skills: A Solid Foundation for All


Presented by: LearningExpress & Library Journal

Event Date & Time: Thursday, February 23rd, 2017, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

A lack of fundamental skills can often create barriers to success. Those seeking to overcome such barriers need a supportive pathway as they endeavor to acquire these skills and connect with a new learning or work environment.

Join LearningExpress and our panel of state, public, academic and school librarians as they discuss the importance of building the foundational skills that adults and students need to succeed.

Gain perspective from each of these professionals as they share their experiences about which skills are often lacking and what libraries can do to help patrons and students acquire these skills.

You’ll also hear how the new Success Skills Centers in select LearningExpress products will provide ways to help individuals build their essential skills and create their own success.
