Lodi library receives $3K grant
Lodi Public Library has been selected as one of 200 libraries to participate in Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries, an American Library Association initiative that helps library workers better serve their small and rural communities, according to a Jan. 11 press release.
The competitive award comes with a $3,000 grant that will help the library purchase a new microfilm reader and develop a community-wide read in the summer of 2021.
As part of the grant, Lodi Public Library staff will take an online course in how to lead conversations, a skill vital to library work today. Staff will then host a conversation with residents about how we create a sense of belonging in the community, a discussion in connection with the community-wide read.
