2018 Public Library Academy
In order to receive financial support, you have to begin with trust, buy-in and a sense of optimism on the part of the funder, whether that funder is a grantor, an individual donor or an institution that oversees your finances.
In the 2018 Public Library Academy, we will explore key elements to arm you with the skills you need and insights into the challenges you face in convincing funders that your institution is worthy of their resources.
Be ready to think hard, examine your own roadblocks and push them out of the way!
The Public Library Academy is geared toward public library directors.
Each director is encouraged to bring a second staff member along as part of their team to build the case for a well-funded library.
When and Where
Maxine Bleiweis will be sharing her strategies to help you make the case for library funding.
She is an experienced executive director of award-winning public libraries in Connecticut and the 2015 recipient of the Charlie Robinson Award for a public library director who has proven to be “a risk taker, an innovator and/or a change agent in a public library.”
