Learn about the brand new funding for public libraries that the Federal government has made available through the American Rescue Plan Act and the Federal Communication Commission’s Emergency Connectivity Fund.

In this webcast, we will cover how many millions are included; how libraries can get it directly from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, through their state library, or from the FCC; what expenses are eligible to spend it on; and more. Led by Stephanie Gerding, author of Grants for Libraries, Winning Grants, Second Edition, the Library Grants blog, and more.
