In the spring YALSA began its second year of the three year Future Ready with the Library project. The focus of this IMLS funded work that is a partnership between YALSA and the Association of Rural and Small Libraries is to provide staff in small, rural, and tribal libraries the opportunity to build college career readiness services for middle school youth and their families. YALSA’s first cohort in this endeavor got to work in January of this year and now it’s time for those wanting to participate in the project to apply to be a part of the second cohort.
You can learn about the project and how to apply in this recording of an information session held last week.
You can read more about the project on the YALSA website and read blog posts by cohort 1 participants.
If you have questions feel free to contact me, Linda W. Braun, the Project Manager for the Future Ready with the Library work.
