2014 Eureka! FellowsThe 2014 Eureka! Leadership Institute was held March 19-24, 2014, in San Jose.

Previous Eureka! Leadership Institutes, held in 2008 – 2012, have been judged by all involved – the participants, mentors, Institute facilitators, and sponsoring agencies – to be a resounding success. In 2013, a nationally recognized team of evaluators studied the Eureka! Leadership Program and documented its strong positive impact on participants, their libraries, and their communities.

Upcoming event dates for 2014 Eureka Fellows: Oct 6-7, 2014 - Eureka! Encore and Jun 8-9, 2015 - Eureka! Anniversary. Both of these events will take place at the Dolce hayes Mansion in San Jose.
