The 2018 Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) is taking place from July 29 to August 1 at the Emory Conference Center Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. RIPL is for public library leaders and others interested in public library data and evaluation. In this immersive, bootcamp-style event, participants learn practical, strategic methods of gathering, analyzing, and using data for planning, management, and communicating impact.
The event is limited to 110 participants and these seats fill up fast. If you are interested in attending, please contact Thomas Ivie at the Wyoming State Library by December 29 at firstname.lastname@example.org or (307) 777-6330. The institute fee of $1,200 includes three nights lodging and most meals.
Funding for Wyoming library workers, trustees, and volunteers may be available through individual continuing education grants from the Carol McMurry Library Endowment. For questions about McMurry grants, contact Brian Greene at email@example.com or (307) 777-6339.
