The California State Library’s 2022-2023 Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA)-funded Inspiration Grants opportunity will provide support to libraries throughout California interested in implementing a project outside of other State Library opportunities.
The LSTA-funded Sustainable California Libraries themed grant opportunity will provide libraries the opportunity to design programming and educational opportunities focused on sustainability and climate resilience, by collaborating with project partners, community connections, and community members.
Successful applicants will demonstrate a commitment to community engagement and equitable programming and services. A minimum of one project partner or community connection is required (see below for examples). All proposals should include plans to develop meaningful public programming opportunities with collaboration encouraged within the library, local jurisdiction, community-based organizations, tribal communities, and schools, where appropriate. Active participation in the Community of Practice is required, as is sharing of best practices and lessons learned. See timeline below for more information.
Proposals should demonstrate how programs, project partners, community connections, and resources intend to engage and support communities most impacted by climate change.
