Project Next Generation (PNG) Project Directors and Mentors are invited to attend this in-person, statewide, mentors’ networking event with other PNG programs.

Share your successes and challenges! Please bring examples of project ideas and/or strategies such as recruitment or marketing. From STEM and coding activities; photography; 3D printing; sewing with conductive thread; and civic engagement, the ideas for sharing are endless!

Join your colleagues for this day of sharing at the State Library! This promises to be an information packed day to ultimately improve experiences for PNG participants.

We'll also talk about reporting and suggestions to improve future PNG applications.

This is a networking event for the libraries awarded FY19 PNG grants . PNG, an educational technology initiative of Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian, Jesse White, was established to help educate at-risk students and bridge the digital divide. By providing technology training for students, with limited access to computers, PNG empowers students to succeed academically and eventually as independent, contributing members of society.

The FY19 grants are supported by the Illinois State Library/Secretary of State with Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
