PROGRAMMING & SERVICES: Packages include equipment and tools to support in-person, hybrid, and virtual programming and services. Other items can include materials and resources for outreach programming that reduce barriers to library spaces and/or provide access to inclusive services and programs beyond the walls of the library (retirement facilities, day-care centers, schools, and other community spaces/group living facilities).

TECHNOLOGY: Packages include equipment and tools to meet libraries’ growing technology needs, assist with marketing material development, and support in-person, hybrid, and virtual programming and services. In addition, materials and resources that reduce barriers to library spaces and/or provide access can also be included in the packages.

SPECIAL COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT: Packages to assist with the expansion or development of the current collection. Items can include print, audio-visual, and non-subscription-based computer software programs (e-books or e-resources on subscriptions not included). Also included in bundles are general collection development supplies and storage for new items. **Not intended for general collection development.
