Libraries are in danger, and qualified, trained library professionals are needed to save them. Your $100 entry fee will help train the superheroes who will lift libraries to the next level and take libraries and their information systems well into the future. In addition to helping students earn a bachelor’s degree in library informatics, your contribution will help fund Steely Library’s “Bridging the Gap: Supplying the Next Generation of Librarians,” which has helped dozens of library employees throughout rural Kentucky and West Virginia to earn degrees online, often the only employees at their libraries to have library science degrees.
