Hello library staff serving middle schoolers,

If you are a small, rural, and/or tribal library, consider applying for the YALSA/ARSL Future Ready project<http://yalsa.ala.org/blog/2019/04/03/future-ready-with-the-library-cohort-4-apply-now/>! You might be the perfect candidate for this project if you answer yes to the following:

·        Do you want to join with your community members to support the success of middle school youth and their families?

·        Are you interested in learning more about teens, community engagement, connected learning, and college and career awareness?

·        Would you like to help middle schoolers start to think about how they can turn what they love to do and are interested in into a career?
You do NOT have to be a YALSA member to do this project, and all participation is funded. I went through the online application to see how long it would take and it’s not that long! If you have questions, contact Linda Braun, lbraun at leonline.com<mailto:lbraun at leonline.com>, or see Kate’s e-mail below for her contact info if you’d like to talk to someone doing this already. I’m happy to help in any other way as well, this project offers invaluable training for working with our communities and it would be great to have more Oregon participants!

Subject: [ARSL_MEMBERSHIP] Future Ready with the Library Cohort 4!

Good morning ARSL folks!

I wanted to share the link to the YALSA Blog post about the call for applications to Cohort 4 for the Future Ready with the Library grant program. I am currently part of Cohort 3 and can't say enough good things about this joint ARSL/YALSA opportunity which assists small, rural, and tribal libraries in expanding and evolving their community engagement practices via the design and delivery of career & college readiness programs for middle grades kids. Working closely with my mentors, coaches, and peers in this program is an incredible experience. Not only are my library & my community benefiting greatly from Future Ready, but I am also developing professional skills, practices, and perspectives that will continue to inform my librarianship for years to come.

I strongly recommend taking a look at this program in order to seriously consider applying to this really unique program. More information is available here: http://yalsa.ala.org/blog/2019/04/03/future-ready-with-the-library-cohort-4-apply-now/
