My Books and Articles


I am a Certified Public Library Administrator, author, trainer, consultant and speaker.

I’ve written four books.

I am often asked to do workshops based on any one of these books. I can tailor a presentation to suit your needs. Just contact me and let me know what you’re interested in and how I might help.

I’ve also written an article and several book chapters, including:

  • “Invest in Yourself,” American Libraries, April 2010.
  • “Reaching Little Heights;” chapter in Children’s Services: Partnerships for Success,” edited by Betsy Diamant-Cohen, ed., ALA Editions, 2010.
  • “Waking Up the Neighborhood: Partnerships with Local Businesses and Art Communities;” chapter in Partnerships and Collaborations in Public Library Communities: Resources and Solutions, Karen Ellis, ed., IGI Global, 2011.
  • “Grants and the Grant Writing Process;” chapter in Library Management 101: A Practical Guide, Diane L. Velasquez, ed., ALA Editions, 2012.
  • Guest Editor and Contributing Writer for Library Worklife, a publication of the Allied Professional Association of the American Library Association. (2006-2007)
