From an IMLS Announcement:
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) today released its Fiscal Year 2015 allotment table for 56 State Library Administrative Agencies (SLAAs), totaling $154,848,000. These annual grants represent the largest source of federal funding support for library services in the U.S.
The grants allocate a base amount to each of the SLAAs, plus a supplemental amount based on population. The agency’s Grants to States program provides federal funds as a supplement to existing state library services rather than a replacement for state funding, and it assures local involvement through financial matching requirements. The newly released allotment table identifies both the federal (66%) and state match share (34%) for each SLAA.
States and their subrecipients have used Grants to States funds to provide a variety of services and programs, including access to electronic databases, computer instruction, summer reading programs, digitization of special collections, access to e-books and adaptive technology, bookmobile service, and outreach programs to the underserved.
