Brockton Public Library presents: Library Wins Federal Grant

Brockton Public Library is pleased to announce that we are recipient of a federal Preservation Assessment grant. This project is being funded through the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners with funds from LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act), a Federal source of Library funding provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The purpose of the grant is to provide consulting services for preservation recommendations on the library’s materials with a focus on historic preservation. The end result of the grant will be a long term strategic plan for improvement of the library’s preservation environment. Library Director Elizabeth Marcus states, “This federal grant is a needed stepping stone that will position us for future preservation and digitization efforts at the library. I’m very excited that we were awarded this important grant.”
