The FY2015 State Aid for Public Library Construction Grant Program Awards have been announced and eleven MHLS Member Libraries, along with the Mid-Hudson Library System, have been awarded funds. The application process began well over a year ago so these libraries have been waiting a long time for this announcement!
The application process for the next round of construction grants is already well underway. Eligible libraries were identified through the Construction Needs & Intent to Apply action memo sent to directors in April. The MHLS deadline for applications was in early August. Thinking about applying for the next round (2016-2017)? Questions can be directed to MHLS Coordinator for Library Sustainability, Rebekkah Smith Aldrich: firstname.lastname@example.org or x239.
