Bellevue Public Library has Received a Stipend from National Organization to Support Programs about Climate Change
Bellevue Public Library has received a $500 stipend from Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) that will help the Library engage our community with programs and conversations on the climate crisis and weather preparedness.
The Resilient Communities programs will begin in November.
Resilient Communities strives to raise awareness and provide accurate information about the climate change crisis to the public through libraries. The pilot project has been funded by a generous grant from Andrew and Carol Phelps, the parents of a public librarian and a library master’s student.
