LSTA Grants

School libraries may either submit a plan for their individual school library or a district-wide plan for all the school libraries.

When a district-wide plan is on file, any school library in the district would be eligible to apply for a LSTA grant. Additionally, the MBLC requires that a certified school librarian be on board as the Project Director who would oversee and be directly responsible for implementation of the grant project.
