Library Services and Technology Act Grant
Minnesota’s Five Year Library Services and Technology Act (2013-2017) identifies two overarching goals and several sub-goals directed at ensuring that all Minnesotans have access to quality library services. One is to expand programs and services that support Minnesotan’s needs for education, lifelong learning, continuing education, workforce development, 21st century and digital literacy skills; the second is to establish a strong infrastructure and build capacity for improved coordination among and between eligible libraries to improve the quality of and access to library and information services.
