Library of Michigan
In accordance with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ recommendations designed to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), we will be canceling/postponing the Beginning Workshop scheduled for May 13-15, 2020 at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire, Michigan.
The state is taking proactive steps to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in reducing the coronavirus risk to Michigan residents.
If your library needs staff attendance at Beginning Workshop in order for your library to receive state aid in fiscal year 2021, please review State Aid to Public Libraries Application Process for information on submitting a waiver request. We will also be contacting libraries that find themselves in this situation and are happy to answer any questions on the certification process.
We understand that you will have additional questions concerning this announcement. The Library of Michigan is working to provide answers for you as quickly as possible. Additional communications will be provided to the Michigan library community in the coming days.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
