State Library News & Announcements

2018-2019 State Grants to Libraries Awards Announced

The Colorado State Library is excited to announce the final funding amounts for the 2018-2019 State Grants to Libraries! The 319 recipients will share in the nearly $2.5 million being distributed. To view all of the awarded libraries (one award per library jurisdiction, academic institution, or school district) and their amounts, please see the Final Funding Allocation Chart. Three new libraries will receive funds this year, increasing the participation level to the highest yet!

These grant funds continue to be made available from the State Legislature because of the wonderful evidence provided by grantees that demonstrate the impact this grant has statewide to the communities the libraries serve. The work is truly impressive!

Visit the State Grants website for more information.
