    • Community Round Two of Harwood Cohort Experience through LM/MCLS

      The Library of Michigan and MCLS are pleased to announce a second round to our several-month long community engagement training program for Michigan library staff.

      The training will be led by coaches from the Harwood Institute for Public Innovation . It will be robust, extensive, and is being offered at no charge to selected Michigan libraries, with generous stipends provided through Library of Michigan LSTA funding.

      On October 5-6, 2016, a cohort of up to 50 Michigan library staff will convene in Lansing, Michigan for a 1.5 day workshop led by two certified Harwood Institute coaches. That training will be followed up by nine months of coaching calls from Harwood, and guidance and support from Harwood trained Library of Michigan and MCLS staff.

      Applications must be submitted by 5pm (Eastern) July 14, 2016.
