Oregon State Library
Extending Library Service to the Unserved Grant Program
Library Services and Technology Act FFY 2013
The mission of the Oregon State Library is to provide leadership, grants and other assistance to improve local library services for all Oregonians. Currently 4% of the population of Oregon does not have tax supported public library service. The State Library Board has made providing library service to the unserved a priority activity. This targeted grant opportunity is designed for those tax supported public libraries that are adjacent to an unserved population and that are interested in developing creative methods for providing and sustaining library service to those Oregonians who currently do not have tax supported public library service. Eligible public libraries are in: Clatsop, Columbia, Lane and Linn Counties and the City of Newberg.
The Extending Library Service to the Unserved Grant Program addresses purpose one of the Oregon State Library LSTA Five-Year Plan 2013-2017, "Provide access to information resources and library services." This packet contains information and forms that will be needed to apply for the Extending Library Service to the Unserved Grant Program. This program may fund up to a three-year series of one-year grants. This is not a districting grant.
