  *   Two Opportunities to Develop Tech Skills with Geek Squad Academy and Best Buy Teen Tech Centers<http://www.webjunction.org/news/webjunction/develop-tech-skills-best-buy.html>: Best Buy Community Relations and the Best Buy Foundation offer community support for libraries to connect underserved youth to technology education through their two signature programs, Geek Squad Academy and the Best Buy Teen Tech Centers. Both programs are currently accepting new proposals.

  *   Civil Legal Aid Program at the Cleveland Public Library Meets Local Needs:<http://webjunction.org/news/webjunction/cleveland-libraries-legal-aid.html> The Cleveland Public Library and The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland had been working in partnership for years, offering several legal aid workshops on general topics that were open to the public. But Aaron Mason, the library's Assistant Director, Outreach and Programming Services, saw an opportunity and a need to develop a more in-depth program. Mason knew the intention behind the workshops was good, but didn't think they were having maximum impact for patrons. He determined that the library could serve more people and address more community needs by transitioning to monthly legal aid clinics that could serve individuals one-on-one.
