Oct 4, 2016

Reposted from WebJunction

Are you always thinking about new ways to engage your community with your library’s services? A big-picture thinker who can also manage minute details and get people excited about long-term projects? Looking for an opportunity to reinvigorate your library space to support active learning in your community?

If this describes you, then check out this awesome opportunity from WebJunction and our partners at the Association for Rural and Small Libraries to submit an application to the Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces project.

Fifteen small public libraries (serving communities with fewer than 25,000 people) will be selected to receive instructional and material support to engage their communities in a space transformation process that supports active learning at the library. In addition to fostering local change and impact, these libraries and their experiences will influence knowledge and resources that will be shared with the public library field at large, demonstrating the amazing leadership that exists within small libraries and their communities.

Applications are being accepted through 5:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on Friday, October 21, 2016. Read the participant overview, and if it feels like a good fit, head on over to the application itself. Please share this opportunity with your networks as well!
