 ...the potential for transforming public libraries, especially in rural areas, is enormous. This is a [network] that brings people together, strengthens our communities and creates another service niche for public libraries in Alberta.

Strategic Planning and Grant Proposals

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
*for library staff only
The Cochrane Public Library has been successful over the past 18 months at applying for and receiving grants for large programs. As the Library has undertaken a serious physical and internal transformation over the past year we have been able to apply for grants that fit with our new vision of a vibrant place and space in the community. Writing grants proposals can be daunting if you don't have a vision, purpose or goal in mind so it is with this in mind that are happy to share our most recent grant successes and the 'why' and 'how' behind them.
