Here is some more info about the funding:
Every five years, each state library administrative agency (SLAA) in the nation (the Vermont Department of Libraries [VTLib] is Vermont’s official SLAA) is required to develop a five-year plan that outlines how it intends to use federal funding provided through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) "Grants to States" program. This plan must be submitted by June 30, 2022 to qualify for funding for Federal Fiscal Years 2023 - 2027.
QualityMetrics, working closely with VTLib, recently completed an independent evaluation of Vermont's implementation of the LSTA program for the 2018 - 2022 period and is now facilitating the development of the new five-year plan. This very brief survey (it should take you no more than five minutes to complete) along with the information gathered during the evaluation are components of the planning process. Please "give us five" to help the Vermont Department of Libraries serve your community better!
