Board President

Chicago Heights Public Library

We knew hiring a library director during a pandemic would be a large undertaking, however, Jim and Alex made the process smoother than I thought it would be.  With their knowledge of how a library operates, this hiring process was quick and painless.  They were able to bring forward excellent candidates who could really help grow and advance our library.  If something went awry, they had a back-up plan ready.  Overall, I would recommend Jim and Alex for a director search.  They handled the  behind-the-scenes tasks which left the trustees able to focus on the interviews and selecting the best director for our location.

As a fairly new director faced with creating a long-term capital expense plan for the first time, I was feeling a little lost.  Jim and Alex took the time to carefully review my library’s situation with me, and to help get me on the right path to creating a solid plan.  Having their perspective as seasoned directors with a broad set of experiences in different libraries saved me a lot of time and worry.   I would highly recommend using them as mentors for sticky situations, especially if you can’t see the forest for the trees!

I wasn't looking forward to an hour and half on Robert's Rules, but they made it interesting.

Jim and Alex took the time to research our organization to help create a presentation that was customized to the needs of our library.
