N.C. Department of Cultural Resources Secretary Linda A. Carlisle announced today that the State Library Division of the Department of Cultural Resources is awarding $1.4 million in federally funded grants for 71 local and statewide library projects for community outreach, library book collections, technology improvements and digitization of materials.
“As North Carolinians turn to their libraries for help doing job searches, summertime reading, and programs for families, this federal investment will help libraries maintain their collections and provide the service and technology so important today,” said Carlisle.
The grant funding is made possible by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), a federal grant-making agency.
North Carolina disseminates federal library funds through competitive grants to local libraries. The remaining funding from the IMLS is directed to statewide programs and resources that benefit all libraries, such as the popular online encyclopedia, NCpedia.
