Upcoming Meetings Discuss IMLS Funding

IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) will host a series of daylong meetings with library stakeholders to discuss IMLS’ funding strategies, particularly its National Leadership Grants for libraries and museums. IMLS is the primary federal funder of the 123,000 libraries in the U.S.

The meetings will address funding options that align with IMLS’ three goals: helping libraries provide access to content, facilitate community engagement, and offer opportunities for lifelong learning. At the New York Public Library on April 29, participants will discuss IMLS’ support for national digital initiatives. The meeting at the San Francisco Public Library on May 15 will center on learning spaces in libraries. And STEM (scientific, technical, engineering, and mathematical) learning will be the topic of the meeting at the Chicago Public Library on June 3.

The meetings will be available as live webcasts, and IMLS invites participation via Twitter using the hashtag #imlsfocus.
