Dream (Projects) Come True with LSTA Grants

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In the 2017-2018 round of LSTA grants, Minnesota funded 15 projects at up to $98,000 for a total of over $560,000 in grant funding. If you have a library-related idea but lack the funds to bring it to life, this session is for you! Come and learn about projects that have received funding and how you can apply to have your own project funded for the upcoming grant round. This workshop will provide attendees with a behind the scenes look at LSTA grants, from the viewpoint of funded and successful grantees from Carver County Library. The grant administrator will provide tips on the application process.
