LSTA Grants

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners works to provide every person in the  Commonwealth with full and equal access to outstanding library services, to promote innovation and collaboration, and to position libraries at the center of civic life in their communities.

Do you have an idea for an innovative new program or service at your library? Want to support an underserved group in your community, start a coding club, or bolster resources for early childhood education?

Apply for an LSTA grant (Library Services and Technology Act) to enhance your library's services or to offer new programs. MBLC consultants will provide guidance and feedback throughout the grant process and project implementation.

Discover how libraries gain eligibility to apply, learn the application process, then write a successful grant proposal.

Find everything you need manage your library's grant award.

In addition to MBLC's direct grants to libraries, other LSTA-funded projects include:

  • Statewide database licensing
  • Disaster recovery and emergency assistance
  • Commonwealth Catalog
  • eBook and eAudio Reciprocal Lending
