Spend Time Cultivating Relationships and Building Influence: with Cathy Hammond

The Librarian Influencer of the Week is Cathy Hammond who has 12 years of library experience in a 4th-6th grade campus and now at high school as the district’s lead librarian. She is from Texas.


Here are a couple of Librarian Influencer strategies Cathy shared:

  • You don’t have to do an extreme makeover when you first move into the library.

  • Concentrate on building relationships when you first move into the library.

  • When you spend time cultivating relationships and building influence with people then it will help your library program become more successful and supported by your district.

  • Work hard to be someone your administrator doesn’t need to worry about.

  • “Go to other people’s parties.” You can build influence and relationships when you attend events and cultivate relationships with others.
