Dream (Projects) Come True with LSTA Grants

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have you heard of Library Services and Technology Act Grants? Did you know that Minnesota funded nine projects at up to $90,000 during the 2016-17 school year for a total of over $500,000 in grant funding, and that six of these projects were in schools?! If you have a library-related idea but lack the funds to bring it to life, this session is for you! Come and learn about projects that have received funding and how you can apply to have your own project funded for the upcoming school year.
