Does your library need help upgrading some outdated hardware? There is a grant available to NCKL libraries in taxing counties. NCKL sets aside $10,000 each year to fund matching grants for technology purchases. Grants of up to $1000 each can be made to individual libraries. The amount of matching money provided by the library will be based on the library’s annual budget. See the grant guidelines for details.

The guidelines also detail what kind of hardware and software can be purchased with the tech grant funds.
Grants will be made on a first-come first-serve basis until the pool has been expended.
Only online applications will be accepted.
Questions regarding the grant should be sent to Carol or Fred. For help in pricing equipment and software for the grant, contact Richard.
