PLEASE NOTE – Due to popular demand, the topic of our last webinar will be changed from “Case Study Spotlight: New Builds & Rebuilds” to “Fundraising for Capital Projects.”

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 #8 – Fundraising

Date/Time: May 2, 10am MT/9am PT

Registration Link: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_CO7scILOQRe7jZYxfqme-g#/registration

Description: Building projects don’t begin when equipment and crews arrive on site. Practically speaking, that journey begins months or years earlier: identifying and securing financing for the capital improvement in question. Funding is a particularly critical yet complex topic for public sector projects. Most of the public library construction or renovation projects greenlit today are the result of not one but multiple funding streams. In particular, so-called “public/private” funding strategies are increasingly the norm. In our second of two case study webinars, Library Strategies consultants will spotlight recent, real-world examples of large-scale library fundraising in action.

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