MCLS Indiana Grant Initiative

The MCLS Board of Directors offers a grant program for Indiana member libraries. The proceeds of the sale of the former INCOLSA building, which sold in 2014 for $250,000 will be used to benefit Indiana libraries through a grant program. $50,000 will be made available each fiscal year for the next 5 years (2015-2020) for various competitive grants and scholarships to benefit MCLS member libraries in Indiana. Non-member libraries may fill out an MCLS membership application to become eligible for these opportunities. Grant opportunities will be announced at the beginning of each fiscal year in July, and will be open to all types of libraries.
