This Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014, the Colorado State Library (CSL) is pleased to announce the launch of http://squarestatecollaborate.com, an online tool to help Colorado-based community organizations and all types of libraries connect to form mutually-beneficial collaborations. Think of it as Match.com for libraries and non-libraries!
SquareStateCollaborate is designed to connect libraries, nonprofit organizations, local governments and foundations who are looking for partners to join them on a project. It’s free and simple to join the website and set up a profile to attract organizations to collaborate with you; we encourage you to join, and to spread the word about the website to organizations in your community.
In the next few months, CSL will host a webinar series highlighting both libraries and community groups to illustrate ways they can work together for the maximum benefit of their customers. The first webinar will feature Pikes Peak Library District (ppld.org/) and SparkFun (www.sparkfun.org), tentatively scheduled for March 25, 2014.
Please contact Jacqueline Murphy firstname.lastname@example.org with any with questions about SquareStateCollaborate or the webinar series, including if you would to participate to have your library spotlighted.
