Part of running a modern library means making sure your building can support the organization's programs and services, is as energy-efficient as possible, and is safe and accessible for all.
If you have building improvement needs - whether it's a simple reconfiguration or a large expansion project - you should consider the NYS Library Construction Aid program.
This guide will serve as a quick reference to NCLS libraries interested in learning more about this program and those who wish to apply. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to System Services Coordinator Dawn Vincent; you can find her in the NCLS staff directory.
