I am delighted to spotlight the Valley Plaza Library in North Hollywood for being awarded $103,592, and the San Fernando County Library for being awarded $36,000, through the State Building Forward Library Facilities Improvement Program!
The Building Forward Library Facilities Improvement Program provides libraries with the opportunity to apply for state funding to expand their buildings, stay on top of maintenance, and/or increase digital accessibility for the public.
The California State Library invites California cities, counties, and special library districts to submit applications for Round Two of the Building Forward Grant Program prior to May 18, 2023. Application opened March 16, 2023 and applications are due by May 18, 2023. Grantees will have until June 30, 2027, to spend any funds received under this program.
