The RISE Network works with public libraries to provide Albertans with opportunities to communicate with health care professionals, participate in distance education, attend meetings, learn new skills and more – all by videoconference from their local library.

RISE Is a great example of community development and efforts to build a resilient, trusted and accessible network of learning opportunity for rural Alberta. Bow Valley College would be pleased to continue utilizing the RISE Network to support and align with needs of rural learners, increase access to post-secondary opportunities and strengthen cross-generational learning through technology

Strategic Planning and Grant Proposals

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
*for library staff only
The Cochrane Public Library has been successful over the past 18 months at applying for and receiving grants for large programs. As the Library has undertaken a serious physical and internal transformation over the past year we have been able to apply for grants that fit with our new vision of a vibrant place and space in the community. Writing grants proposals can be daunting if you don't have a vision, purpose or goal in mind so it is with this in mind that are happy to share our most recent grant successes and the 'why' and 'how' behind them.
