SELCO Vetted Programs were created by request of public library directors. A Vetted Catalog Selection Team meets to recommend performers and programs to include in the catalog. SELCO then contracts with a variety of performers and programs to provide their services to regional libraries.
As of October 15, 2018, only SELCO members are able to apply for any Legacy funding. This is to stay in compliance with Minnesota State Statutes pertaining to ACHF dollars.
SELCO member libraries are able to host up to 3 SELCO Vetted Programs in their library during the 2019 fiscal year. The individual programs are applied for by SELCO member libraries and fit into the performer’s schedule. This program runs on a first-come, first-served basis.
These programs are funded by SELCO through a grant from the Legacy Amendment Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF). The programming supported by this grant is intended to support arts, arts education and arts access, and to preserve Minnesota’s history and cultural heritage, and as such, programs with a scientific or STEM focus are included only if they have a significant aspect that includes storytelling, Minnesota culture or history.
Publicity is required for all Legacy funded programs. Libraries are strongly encouraged to use the SELCO provided posters for all Vetted Programs. If the Library chooses to create its own posters and forgo the provided SELCO publicity, the Library must have the poster pre-approved by SELCO’s Legacy Project Coordinator.
