Transforming Libraries Through Collaboration, Collections and Endowment Building
November 29, 2012
In this Demco-sponsored webcast, Tom Linfield, the Vice President of Grantmaking and Community Initiatives for Madison Community Foundation joins Demco’s Director of Library Markets, Janet Nelson to discuss how libraries can work together within their communities to better leverage their resources.
In Dane County, the Madison Community Foundation has partnered with a coalition of all 28 of the county’s public libraries to enrich collections, build a programming endowment and create new collaborative opportunities. Tune in to learn more about the successes and challenges of this novel partnership, the first of its kind in the nation. This program will explain how the relationship began through what it has become today, wrapping up with an explanation of the current Beyond the Page project, designed to create a multi-million dollar programming endowment fund. This webinar will share lessons learned and give you ideas on how to replicate these programs and partnerships in your own community.
