Date(s) - 08/15/2017
10:30 am - 11:30 am



What is a challenging patron? It all depends on who you ask and what branch of the library they work for.

Challenging patrons are various types of people, all with different issues and concerns. From eccentric behaviors to mentally unbalanced people. From unruly children, to those who are upset or angry with the library itself. Their concerns can be all across the board.

In this interactive and informative webinar, participants will learn:

  • Identifying challenging patrons and present ideas to help work with them.
  • Words and phrases to use and not to use when working with a challenging patron
  • To resolve conflicts – with the formula of LASTS- as it applies to the different categories of patrons- Look-
    Attitude – Speak – Take Responsibility – Serve

Attendees will have the opportunity to create a personal plan of action and accountability that will help them put these ideas into practice.
