Starting this year, and continuing into the future, the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation's Library Grant Program will no longer provide grants to public libraries. The only exceptions will be for bookmobile programs. Our grant program is now focused on school libraries, lending libraries operated by charitable or other non-taxable entities (e.g. family or youth development organizations, detention centers, hospitals, etc.), and bookmobile programs operated by public libraries or other organizations. Charitable organizations supporting public libraries ("Friends of the Library" organizations) may apply for a public library only if they are applying for funds to buy books for a bookmobile program.
