Does your library need to upgrade its broadband service? Add programming space? Expand its teen room? Improve ADA access? Each year New York State makes millions of dollars in construction aid available to public libraries and library systems. This workshop will walk you through the application process. Learn what constitutes an eligible project and what documents are necessary to include with your application. Avoid pitfalls that can disqualify or delay an application. Life happens; learn how to amend a project once it has begun.
