Can You Help Me? How Libraries Can Help Non-profits in Your Community Thrive
January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ESTFree
Sometimes we all need some help. In your community are amazing people who are trying to make the world a little bit better for us, or the trees and plants, or for animals, or for the kids at the local skate park. There are
many reasons why people start or become involved with nonprofit organizations. They have passion for their community in common and are often cash-strapped. Sharpen your skills and see your library’s resources with new eyes as you learn how you can help local non-profits thrive.
As a result of this program, attendees will:
- Discover how your library can help non-profit organizations increase their organizational capacity
- Apply your analytical skills to helping your patrons from non-profits access quality information to help them further their cause
- Learn how you can create a nonprofit support center within your library
