TOPEKA -- Kansas First Lady Mary Brownback announced today applications for Kansas Book Festival Grants can be found online. Public libraries and school libraries located in Kansas are eligible to apply for the grants. Information and applications are available at kansasbookfestival.com/get-involved/grants.
"These grants will help libraries with resources to stay ahead of the technology curve and to keep the materials on their shelves as relevant as possible to the young patrons of the library. I want all Kansas children to have a rich and fulfilling experience with libraries and books, and my hope is that these grants will help achieve that," Brownback said
The two grants will pay for either technology improvements or to fund book purchases. Libraries can apply for both grants, but no library will be awarded both grants in the same calendar year and libraries are not eligible to receive grants in back-to-back years.
Applications must be postmarked by Dec. 31, and grants will be awarded in March.
