Strong libraries, stronger communities.
Unfortunately, libraries’ current funding structures and the limited professional development options available to librarians make it difficult to introduce innovation at scale. So we’re creating a nonprofit, Library Pipeline, dedicated to supporting structural changes by providing opportunities, funding, and services that improve the library as an institution and librarianship as a profession.
Library Pipeline will be a platform for projects. We have prioritized four areas in which modest funding, paired with guidance and collaboration, should lead to significant improvements:
Our fifth area is Library Pipeline itself, specifically is governance and sustainability. We are working to raise the funds we need in order to establish our 501(c)(3) status, which will enable us to begin turning our working documents into a strategic plan that provides the foundation for our ongoing sustainability.
Today we are looking for volunteers to help us with this work! If you are interested, please fill out our volunteer interest form. Select the committee choice you are most interested in and we will be in touch with you within two weeks. [Update 17 June 2015: Our communication channels for volunteers are now live. Please submit the volunteer interest form and we’ll send you an invitation.]
