Grants For Maryland Public Libraries

Hello and welcome!

This is the central hub of information about Library and Service Technology Act (LSTA) grants for the Maryland State Library Agency. Please use the buttons/links to the left to navigate. The Maryland State Library Agency only awards grants to Maryland Public Library systems. All other grant-seeking organizations should seek to partner with a Maryland public library system to be eligible for an LSTA grant from MSLA.

What is the Maryland State Library Agency?

As the state library agency for Maryland, MSLA administers State and Federal funds to support Maryland public libraries in their mission to offer outstanding resources, programs, and excellent customer service. The State Library Resource Center, at the main branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, serves as the official state library. MSLA has oversight of the Maryland State Library for the Blind and Print Disabled; Maryland’s Public Libraries; the State Library Network; the Library Capital Grants Programs; and the Deaf Culture Digital Library.
