Now a workspace, now a tech hub, now a health information center. You can develop new skills, take a job interview, learn more about health and wellness, and more — all from your local library.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, libraries have been an essential lifeline to communities coping with the unprecedented challenges we’ve all faced.
With the expansion of technology and e-Content provided by the MI-83 Project, libraries will continue to help address specific community needs that have been highlighted by the pandemic. Equipped with these new resources, libraries are here to help you with skill and job development, provide healthcare information and resources, and more.
Through the MI-83 Project, public libraries in all 83 Michigan counties are eligible for increased digital eContent from Overdrive, and technology tools and equipment to help facilitate recovery from the devastating economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The MI-83 Project will allow the East Lansing Public Library to provide new services such as:
- Audio and e-Books - Increased Overdrive content in the areas of education, health, job-seeking skills, and workforce development.
- Online programs - Programming kits to create new virtual and online programming options.
- Outdoor programs - Programs for all ages in an open-air environment.
- Much more!
Keep an eye out for announcements of new and exciting opportunities, made possible by the MI-83 Project!
Funding for this project is provided in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library of Michigan, an agency of the Michigan Department of Education.
