Request for Proposal
The project, Adult Literacy at Trent Hills Public Library: Connec7ng Offline and Online Learning (COOL) is managed by the Friends of the Campbellford/Seymour Carnegie Library (Friends of THPL) in partnership with the Trent Hill Public Library (THPL). The Friends of THPL does not do programming directly. Its primary goal is to enhance the resources and services offered by the THPL. The Friends of THPL organizes fundraising events, focuses public aFenUon on the library’s resources and services, and represents the mutual interests of the library and the communiUes it serves. The THPL has three branches: Campbellford, HasUngs and Warkworth.
As rural libraries are life-long learning and social engagement hubs, the aim of the COOL project is to build the THPL’s capacity to beFer help adults and seniors to build their basic digital skills and knowledge to be able to use computers and smartphones; and to strengthen their social connecUons and reading skills through using Hi-Lo chapter books, engaging in book club events and parUcipaUng in other adult literacy acUviUes offered by the THPL. The COOL project is funded by the Peter Gzowski FoundaUon for Literacy Grant.
