If you follow the American Library Association (ALA), you may have noticed that they recently announced their Libraries Transforming Communities grants. We are excited to let you know that Lindsborg Community Library is included in those Small & Rural Libraries!
Congrats to the recipients of ALA’s Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries grants! We can’t wait to see all the great work you’ll do leading conversations in your communities. #LibrariesTransform @RuralLibAssoc https://t.co/vT9LDb0TlI pic.twitter.com/4S1hGSbFQj

For this grant project, we will be conducting community conversations on how Library resources can support the economic development goals presented in the City of Lindsborg’s 15-20 year Comprehensive Plan. We are brimming with ideas on how we could do this; we will be seeking your input on how you would like to see the Library serving our community as well. With the information gathered from your participation, this grant will fund the purchase of library resources that our community determines are most important.
More details will be announced later. For now, please join us in thanking our sponsors, the American Library Association (ALA) and South Central Kansas Library System (SCKLS)!
