LFPL Receives ALA Grant

The Little Falls Public Library has been selected as one of 100 libraries to participate in round

three of Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries, an American Library Association (ALA) initiative that helps library workers better serve their small and rural communities. 

The competitive award comes with a $10,000 grant that will help the library provide support and resources to support children and teens with reading disabilities.

“We are so proud to be chosen for this amazing opportunity,” said Library Director Cheyenne Aney. “This grant will allow our library to expand our services and support to struggling readers.” As part of the grant, the library will host a community conversation to discuss areas of need and the types of services and supports that will address those needs.

The meeting will be held Friday, November 17th at 3:30 pm and is open to the public.

Since 2014, ALA’s Libraries Transforming Communities initiative has re-imagined the role libraries play in supporting communities. Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL).
