Workforce and Small Business

Bridgton Public Library has been selected as one of 300 libraries to participate in Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries, an American Library Association (ALA) initiative that helps library workers better serve their small and rural communities. 

The competitive award comes with a $3,000 grant that will help the library work with local nonprofits and agencies to support Workforce and Small Business Development.

We will host a conversation with residents about workforce development and small business needs and use the grant funds to better coordinate and share resources available here in our community.

As we know, the economy and the nature of work impacts every facet of life. By working together we can identify workforce training and small business development needs and resources in our community to develop a stronger and better network for families in the Bridgton area.

“Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL).”
