Bremer Foundation selects Willmar Public Library for literacy program

WILLMAR -- The Willmar Public Library is one of six rural libraries and six literacy organizations selected to participate in an Otto Bremer Foundation literacy program called the Bremer Rural Libraries and Literacy Leadership Institute.

Local team members Pam Kyllingstad, Mary Huesing, and Ryan McCormick received scholarships to participate in the institute. The institute, also known as L3, was launched in August 2012.

The 12 organizations will be the pilot program's first participants in an intensive training and mentoring program designed to expand their capacity for meeting the unique needs of rural communities.
