Library receives ROI grant for makerspaceDecember 23, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — Regional Opportunity Initiatives has awarded the Jasper Public Library a quality of place implementation grant as part of ROI’s Ready Communities program.
The library’s grant is one of 12 ROI awarded in seven counties in the Indiana Uplands.
The Ready Communities competitive grant program empowers counties and communities to strategically plan for, develop and implement projects and programs that build quality of place, grow regional capacity for workforce development and attraction, and improve the attributes and amenities that make the Indiana Uplands a desirable place to live, work, and play.
With its grant, the Jasper Public Library plans “to create, equip and staff a mobile makerspace.” Its grant will fund a mobile van to bring hands-on STEM — Science, technology, engineering and math — library and creative programming to community events and locations throughout Dubois County.
Grants were awarded in amounts ranging from $100,000 to $250,000 per project, for a total of $1,863,781.
