ALA: ALA receives $2 million Google. org grant to develop library entrepreneurship centers. “Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced the funding for ALA as part of a $10 million pledge to help entrepreneurs from low-income and underrepresented groups start new businesses via access to training and capital. The $2 million grant builds on Google’s ongoing support of ALA and libraries, including the Libraries Lead with Digital Skills collaboration funded by Grow with Google, which gave ALA $1 million to help libraries provide digital skills training to their patrons.That initiative, announced earlier this year, has already supported 130 libraries across 18 states and will continue to all 50 states in 2020.”
