CHICAGO — There is nothing like attending a library conference or workshop to spark new interest, excitement and motivation in a library employee. That’s why Pat Carterette, a former staff development specialist, was always in the forefront of encouraging people to sign up, go…learn something new!

In her memory and to help further that legacy, the Learning Round Table of the American Library Association is offering the Pat Carterette Professional Development Grant. The grant winner will be awarded up to $1,000 to attend a continuing education event. Monies can be used to cover registration, travel, lodging or other expenses. How can you win? Simply fill out an online application at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PCLearnrt2016  before March 1, 2016. Supplemental letters of support and other materials can be emailed to: Catherine Hakala-Ausperk, Learning Roundtable/Pat Carterette Scholarship Committee Chair, at chakalaausperk@gmail.com.

The grant award will be announced at a Learning Roundtable meeting at ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida in June, 2016. The scholarship money can be used anytime in 2016-2017.

In honor of Pat’s spirit of learning, apply today!

The ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR) is the liaison to the ALA Learning Round Table.
