The Kansas Book Festival will again be awarding grants in the areas of technology and books. The application process will begin October 1 and end December 31.

There will be at least (1) one Technology Grant at no more than $5,000 and at least (2) Book Funding Grants at no more than $2,500 each. Grants may be funded only in part to help make the biggest impact. Special consideration will be given to libraries with a great financial need.

To apply for one of the grants, you must be either a public library or school library located in Kansas. You may apply for both the Technology and Book Funding grants, but no library will be awarded both grants in the same calendar year. Libraries also are not eligible to be awarded a grant from the Kansas Book Festival in consecutive years.

Grant applications will be due by December 31, 2016. Grant winners will be notified by March 31, 2017.
