WHAT is NEO?
The Northeast Ohio Regional Library System serves multitype libraries in 22 counties across the region. Nearly 30 libraries from our region are directly represented by staff and directors on our Board, Committees and Advisory Groups, making NEO-RLS the largest and most inclusive organization for inter-library cooperation, consultation, and resource sharing in the region.
At NEO-RLS, we believe that flexibility and collaboration are critical dimensions of service, given the diversity of needs, resources, and long-term goals of the libraries we serve. Because of this, NEO-RLS’s 2016 Strategic Plan highlights our continuing commitment to provide responsive and innovative services for the region’s libraries and to facilitate the cultivation of expertise through continuing education, staff day planning, and strategic consulting. Contact us today to learn how we can support your staff, your patrons, and your library in meeting your organization’s goals!
We’re very grateful for the support of all of these libraries and staff members – they are what make NEO your regional. Please call or email us if you’d like to help shape the direction, services and impact of NEO!
Staff at the following libraries have supported NEO in recent years by sharing their expertise with regional librarians at NEO-facilitated staff development days, in webinars, and other continuing education opportunities:
