Expanding Library Horizons through Alternative Funding Sources

September 13, 2005

1:00 – 2:30 pm ET

Eric Stackhouse, Chief Librarian, Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library

Members $77 Non-members $97


How are libraries to deliver innovative and value-added services with static or shrinking operating budgets? There are ways to engage new funding sources through strategic partnerships without compromising your goals and objectives. To achieve this will require new approaches and attitudes borrowed from community development, political advocacy, and business.


The presentation will provide detailed explanation of these concepts and how to put them into use in your own library. It will be argued that this approach can also provide a stable and expanding future for operating funding. It is the perfect time to be a community institution that is “all things to all people”.


Eric Stackhouse is Chief Librarian of the Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library. A graduate of both the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario, he has worked in school, university, and public libraries. A strong advocate of a community development role for libraries, Eric has a particular interest in rural library services and how they can play a role in providing a future for small communities. Originally from Saint John, he now resides in Pictou County, Nova Scotia.
