Enrollment now open for Michigan Online “Grant Writing and Crowdfunding for Public Libraries” course with access through Aug 30, 2022

The Midwest Collaborative for Library Services and the University of Michigan are partnering again to extend the offer of a free pilot of the “Grant Writing and Crowdfunding for Public Libraries” course on Michigan Online. All staff of MCLS member public libraries in both Indiana and Michigan are eligible to participate.

We are very excited to share that Kristin Fontichiaro, Clinical Professor at the University of Michigan School of Information, is the instructor for this four-week, self-paced course. This course offers 6.5 contact hours for continuing education credit upon successful completion of the course. This course does not count towards university or college credit hours. The partnership represents an effort between U-M and MCLS to support professional development in public library management.

Please enroll here. You will need to create a free account in order to join. If you need technical support, please email
