This webinar is California-specific, although others may find it of interest. Everyone is welcome to attend.

It's time again for Pitch an Idea! The California State Library's Pitch-an-Idea Program is a competitive LSTA grant process designed to give California libraries an opportunity to present a project idea to the State Library without initially writing a full grant application.

  • Are you ready for the next round of the Pitch an Idea grant cycle?
  • Do you know what are some essential items that must be a part of a successful "pitch" proposal?
  • Do you know the rules and guidelines regarding the use of LSTA funds?

The webinar will begin with an overview of the Pitch an Idea Program, including changes to the process for FY 2017/2018 and information about the use of LSTA funds. Following an introductory presentation, State Library staff will engage in a Q and A discussion with participants. We encourage you to attend and bring your questions about the Pitch an Idea process.   At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the process for the State Library's Pitch an Idea competitive grant program for FY 2017/18
  • Understand the basics of a good pitch proposal and appropriate use of LSTA funds
  • Be inspired to research and propose creative ideas for LSTA funding from the California State Library

This webinar will be of interest to: all library staff interested in applying for a Pitch an Idea grant.
