Hartzell-Mika Consulting, LLC is a Michigan-based firm utilizing consultants with multiple decades of library experience. We have a thorough understanding of libraries, their challenges, and the necessity for quality leadership. Through our knowledge of the profession we are able to work with you to assess your organization's needs, develop a plan to meet those needs and assist you during the implementation
Our firm works only with libraries and has been in business since 1999. We provide assistance with library director searches, strategic planning facilitation, facility development and planning, and staff and board training sessions. We are proud of the fact that many of our clients have returned to us as their needs evolve and they require additional services. To date we have worked with nearly 100 libraries.
We believe an essential first step in any project is to meet with the staff and Library Board to learn the unique issues facing the library as it meets its community’s needs. As a firm we believe leadership is essential for a library’s success and we are committed to serving as an “honest broker” to assist the staff and Library Board to meet the challenges and opportunities of providing quality library services in today’s environment.
