Montana Libraries SPARK Economic Development Initiative

Montana Libraries Spark LogoThe Montana Libraries SPARK Initiative is the Montana State Library's state-wide economic development initiative. Started in 2020, Montana Libraries SPARK provides programming ideas and professional development opportunites for librarians in order to empower Montana's public libraries to support and assist business and economic development communities. With Montana Libraries SPARK, we hope that:

  • Montana public libraries become active contributors to economic development on a statewide and local level
  • Local business support ecosystems recognize libraries as important players in economic development
