Are you working with a community group that
facilitates discussions and struggles with what materials to buy or
Have you wished you had a projector and screen
available to use for an evening here or there?
Is a flipchart "nice to
have" but not "need to have"
for your organization?
For a little while now, the idea of a
facilitation library - where community members
can borrow resources for facilitation of events - has been floating
around the table at Happy City St. John's.
We know from our own experiences, as well as
those of other non-profits and community groups in St. John's, it
can be sometimes be difficult (and costly) to gather the
appropriate materials to facilitate a discussion or a consultation
session. This is especially true for volunteer-led and
donation-/grant-driven organizations. However, these challenges
don't reduce the importance of - nor should they overshadow - the
conversations that occur at these sessions.
Here's where the St. John's Tool
Library comes into play.Having opened
earlier this year, the Tool Library has a long-term goal of
expanding into a "library of things", and we have the opportunity
to work with them to open a facilitation library.
So, we want to hear from
you! Do you work with a group that could benefit from
borrowing facilitation equipment? What resources would you like to
see? Do you have any equipment you would be willing to donate to
such a library?
