Grant will provide additional Wi-Fi services in CCRLS libraries
The Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service (CCRLS) was selected as one of 68 awardees, from a pool of 1,700 applicants, to receive an Institute of Museum and Library Science (IMLS) grant.
The CCRLS will purchase Wi-Fi hotspots to circulate through its 18 libraries. It will also offer remote and in-person educational opportunities through workshops, facilitated by community college subject experts, to aid in pandemic recovery.
This pilot program will create a content development service model that addresses immediate skill-building needs in the community and increases the chances of adults returning to school to earn certifications or degrees for career advancement.
