IMLS Western Regional Fellowship

Great news! The IMLS Western Regional Fellowship guidelines and application are now "live" on the Transforming Life After 50 website at:

The IMLS Western Regional Fellowship: Transforming Life After 50 (TLA50) has been created as a collaborative effort of the California State Library, Idaho Commission for Libraries, Oregon State Library, and Washington State Library in partnership with the Pacific Library Partnership. It has been funded by a grant from the U.S. Institute for Museum and Library Services, Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program with additional support from the participating State Libraries.

The goal of this Fellowship program is to develop public library leaders committed to working with and serving midlife adults ages 50+. Fellows should be public library staff on a leadership track. Acceptance of the Fellowship implies a commitment to work as an individual, as a representative of your library, and as a part of a cohort of Fellows to help reshape library practices regarding midlife adults ages 50+. Acceptance also implies a commitment from the Library Director, as evidenced by their Library Commitment Letter, to support the Fellow in his/her efforts to transform the library’s approach to midlife adults.
