OLIS will be offering non-competitive grants to all public libraries to support reading and learning programs this summer. The program will reimburse pre-approved expenditures for programming at libraries this summer which fall into OLIS’ priorities for summer programming. Each library will be eligible for $500 for youth activities and $250 for adult activities. Library systems may request an additional $250 per location for youth activities.The grant application will open March 8 and an informational webinar is scheduled for March 8 at 2 pm.
LORI Grants are supported through the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and funded through the IMLS Grants to States program under the Library Services and Technology Act.
