Grants for Alaska Libraries and Schools

The Alaska State Library helps public and school libraries acquire financial assistance.

Public Library Assistance Grants

Alaska public libraries and combined school public libraries may apply for the Public Library Assistance grant each year. In order to receive this grant, the library must continue to meet a variety of ongoing eligibility requirements. Grant funds may be used to pay staff, purchase library materials, or pay for any other daily operating cost of the library.
