The State Library of Kansas is committed to promoting literacy, lifelong learning, and access to library materials throughout the state. To that end, the State Library of Kansas, funded through an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Grant, is announcing a non-competitive grant opportunity for libraries in Kansas to purchase books from the 2015 Kansas Notable Books list.
Each participating Kansas library will be reimbursed for the purchase of a single copy, in a given format, of any or all of the books on the 2015 Kansas Notable Books List. It is not required for all books to be selected from the list but those which are appropriate for your institution. Any shipping costs, sales tax and/or protective book covers are the responsibility of individual recipient library. Only the actual cost of the book will be reimbursed with grant funds.
To be eligible, a library must be a public library, a public or private academic library, or a school library with a full-time licensed school media specialist in the building. Additionally, eligible libraries must be a participating KICNET and/or OCLC library. Library must agree to the terms listed within the Grant and Subgrant Eligibility Policy and Assurances.
