Indiana Libraries Harwood Lab Scholarships 2015

Award announcement

August 18, 2015: 13 Indiana libraries receive scholarship from MCLS to attend Harwood/ALA Public Innovators Lab 

The program

MCLS is offering up to 20 scholarships to MCLS member libraries in Indiana to send staff to the Harwood/ALA Public Innovators Lab, October 14-16, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan.

These funds are being made available through a grant program established by the MCLS Board of Trustees from the proceeds of the sale of the former INCOLSA building.  $50,000 per year for the next five years will be made available on July 1 of each year. MCLS will announce future grant opportunities as funds become available.

The Harwood Public Innovators Lab is a two and a half day experience to help you and your organization learn what it means to turn outward – to use the community, not your conference room, as your reference point for choices and action.

MCLS has been using the tools of the Harwood Institute and sharing them with libraries since 2013.  We are excited to be able to support training for a cohort of Indiana librarians.
