Thanks, Bill!
Jerilynne Stewart
01:13:11
I'm curious how many applications you received...
Tina Coleman
01:13:36
about 150 - 170 growth grant
Tina Coleman
01:13:53
and about 50 - 70 for Innovation
Tina Coleman
01:14:13
BUT - grant proposals stay in the pool for 2 years
Tina Coleman
01:14:47
correct
Catherine Lee
01:15:05
We benefitted from that 2 year pool...We received it the 2nd year.
Elizabeth Brown
01:15:12
it's a very rewarding process- lots of great ideas
Catherine Lee
01:18:09
And it's something that can still be done during a pandemic!
Catherine Lee
01:18:35
I love the idea of Virtual Cosplay!
Elizabeth Brown
01:18:59
yeah- we're trying to figure that out at my library too ;)
Cathy Burwell
01:19:39
Could we ask Bill about some of the programming he does as a dedicated Comics Librarian at a university?
Cathy Burwell

Jerilynne Stewart

Yes! GNCRT does amazing work - the curated lists of titles in special areas (incarceration, intersection, immigration, etc) are especially helpful! And hte group has been so responsive whenever I've had questions.
