Rural Gateways: Fostering the Development of Rural Librarians as Informal Science Facilitators
The Califa Library Group
is accepting applications for mini-grants to librarians in rural public libraries who are interested in providing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programming for adults.

The library programs use videos and popular books to engage audiences and promote discussion. The professional development provided will include interactive webinars, online learning materials, peer support, and video case studies of similar adult STEM programs.
Participating libraries will receive program materials, a planning guide, marketing and promotional templates, up to $3,500, and an avenue for new patrons to find your library.Communities will receive a series of engaging, thought-provoking programs and find another reason to love their local library!
