Elevate Advanced Manufacturing, a statewide campaign to promote careers and training in advanced manufacturing, has given $500 to each of 15 public libraries and museums in Iowa to educate young people and their parents about career opportunities in the field. Despite offering high-paying jobs, manufacturers in Iowa are facing a worker shortage that's expected to grow to more than 6,600 unfilled positions by 2018. A list of the libraries is here.
