Billed as an ‘Opportunity Knocks webinar, this FREE webinar will look at some of the ‘levelling up’ concepts that might be good for libraries.
Thursday 24 March 13:00 – 14:00, online
The UK Shared Prosperity Fund has as its stated goal “to build pride in place and increase life chances across the UK”. This ‘placed based approach’, with its focus on enriching the lives of those who face disadvantage, is core to the work of public libraries. It could be a huge opportunity for library services, and for local
authorities to put libraries at the heart of their bids. This webinar is a chance to understand the process, and how library services could be a core part of local investment plans.
Speakers:
• Helen Barnard, Pro-Bono Economics and Joseph Rowntree Foundation
• Andrew Laird, Mutual Ventures
• Library service lead talking about their experience
