The West Virginia Library Commission has presented $187,180 in state grants to 47 public libraries in the state. The grants were awarded in June, based on facility, programming, and collections proposals from each library. The maximum award is $5,000 per library.
29 grants were awarded for facility maintenance, nine for collection development, nine for programming improvements, and 3 for other service enhancements. Clay County Public Library was among those allotted funds, and received $5,000.
“These grants reflect the critical needs in West Virginia’s public libraries,” said Karen Goff, Executive Secretary of the WVLC. “They will allow libraries to improve their facilities, as well as enhance the programs and services they provide to state residents.”
