Program Description

Event Details

Public libraries, along with other American institutions, no longer operate alone. They do not provide services in silos. They work collaboratively to meet community needs and aspirations. At least that’s the intent. Now how is that done? How is that worked into an LSTA grant?

This one-hour webinar will offer: 1) guidance to identify CALL courses to help you develop community connectors and partners, 2) direct instruction on addressing these connections for your grant proposal, and 3) a little inspiration on why it matters.
