Throughout the fall/winter of 2023-2024, the ICfL in partnership with Library Strategies, will be offering a series of webinars focused on the various aspects of library facility improvements and capital projects, with a specific focus on public libraries and rural communities. Whether you are a library just starting your building journey or are already in the middle of construction, there will be something for everyone!

These webinars are free and open to Idaho’s entire library community, however registration is required. We will also be recording all the webinars and posting them on our website for future access (no registration required to access the recordings).

Webinar #3 – Private + Public Funding

Date/Time: December 7, 10am MT/9am PT

Registration Link: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_jCgViKBwSXOcIV5U1EIM6g#/registration

Description: Local public funding beyond the annual operating budget is almost always a prerequisite for a capital reinvestment in library facilities. Library leadership must be prepared to champion the library’s long-range needs in front of local budget-makers. This webinar will also give an overview of public/private partnerships – when and to what extent feasibility studies, capital campaigns, and other fundraising efforts can supplement public funds.

This webinar is made possible through funding from the US Treasury Department’s Capital Project Funds (CDFA # 21.029 CPF).
