Rural Library Sustainability Program
Thousands of library staff attended workshops delivered in 42 states as a part of the Rural Library Sustainability Project. If you're a participant wanting to revisit a module of the workshop or a trainer wanting to replicate the workshop, you will find all of the materials here. The Documents tab above will provide you with marketing materials on the workshop, as well as the Rural Library Sustainability Continuum. Many folks have used the Continuum as a stand-alone tool to document progress on sustainability efforts.
