Hi Oregon library community,


Hope you are staying safe and healthy. I've been soaking in information on
elections, the Constitution, misinformation, in prep for continuing my
workshops. But, it looks like in-person workshops will have to wait for
awhile so I'm contemplating online versions.


This might be a great way to "extend your outreach" about topics which are
very timely.


If you would like to chat about the possibility of offering a set of online
Civics workshops, please contact me. We can look at various options.


Take care!

Subject: [Libs-Or] PL Grant: OCLC Community Engagement Award (Apps due 5/31)




Here's a grant opportunity for public libraries - the
<https://www.oclc.org/en/about/awards/community-engagement-award.html> OCLC
Community Engagement Award: 


How have you created impact and extended your reach? Public libraries
continuously transform to better support local communities. We are excited
to recognize and celebrate their significant community engagement work with
three $5,000 awards.


Between now and May 31, 2020, tell us about a current project, or one
completed within the past year, that impacts and extends your public
library's reach by engaging with your community. How do you build stronger
relationships? How do you partner to meet local needs? How do you encourage
better conversations? How do you create programming that positively impacts
your community?


Three $5,000 winning library programs will be chosen by a panel of OCLC
member library leaders. We'll contact each winner prior to a public
announcement in July 2020.


Apps are due May 31st, and OCLC membership is not required.


I learned about the grant from the  <http://librarygrants.blogspot.com/>
Library Grants blog.
