The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has provided the New York State Library with $6.2 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds through the LSTA Grants to States Program. The State Library has allocated $5,514,315 of these federal funds to New York State’s nine regional Reference and Research Library Resources Councils for collaborative regional projects that will advance digital equity, encourage library/museum partnerships, and expand student access to digital resources.
Please check back in the coming months to learn more about the progress we are making in this regional digital equity effort with our partners, Brooklyn Public Library, Queens Library, New York Public Library, Westchester Library System and their member libraries.
