State Library to Offer Fall 2011 Classes

The State Library is pleased to announce free classes that are open to state employees, library staff, and to the public.

Finding a Funder for Your Nonprofit Organization (October 18) will help individuals locate information on grants available from private foundations and corporations using the State Library's electronic and print resources.

Getting Connected with Government Information (November 1) is designed to help citizens take advantage of state and federal legislative websites to keep up with the current sessions. It will also include a review of websites and print resources for tracking bills and regulations, contacting legislators, and searching databases of legislative materials. County and city administrative websites will also be reviewed.

Introduction to the Foundation Directory Online (November 15) will include basic and advanced search techniques for using the Foundation Center's grants database to find potential funders for your nonprofit.

Proposal Writing Basis (December 6) will focus on what needs to be included in all your grant proposals.
