Propagating Promising Practices - Webinar

  • 1.  Propagating Promising Practices - Webinar

    Posted Mar 10, 2020 08:54 AM

    You are cordially invited to participate in a webinar on April 3, 1-2:15 EST to learn about how Providence Public Library, Chicago Public Library, and Los Angeles Public Library have partnered on a project, "Propagating Promising Practices", funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to implement technology-enabled practices to support adults with limited literacy, technology and/or English skills.  Learn how the three practices – learning circles, Learning Lounges, and mobile learning are helping public libraries to be effective and welcoming hubs for lifelong learning, digital inclusion, and economic empowerment. 


    In this phase of the project, we will select and support six additional public libraries nationwide to pilot one of these practices to meet their communities' needs. We will review the details of the project, the application process, timeline, training and supports available.  Applications are due on May 15, 2020.
