Monroe County Public Library Establishes Nonprofit Central, Hires Coordinator

Bloomington, Ind.--The Monroe County Public Library is pleased to announce the creation of Nonprofit Central, a centralized resource center addressing the unique information needs of area nonprofits.

Located on the second floor of the library, Nonprofit Central is a free and welcoming place for nonprofit
board members, staff, and volunteers from Monroe County’s 700+ nonprofit organizations to find
information and support for improving management and governance, increasing fund raising and resource
development capacity, and strengthening the collaborative environment in which Monroe County
nonprofits operate.

Nonprofit Central offers knowledgeable staff to assist with locating resources, learning and networking
opportunities, and one-on-one consultation. By providing staff dedicated to building a special collection
and meeting both the general and specific information needs of our county’s diverse nonprofits, Nonprofit
Central will play an active role in enabling community organizations become self-sustaining.

Marc Tschida will serve as coordinator of Nonprofit Central. Tschida has 15 years of experience working in
both the business and nonprofit sectors of the Bloomington arts and cultural community, most recently as
