Public Library Grants

Supporting public libraries with technology and innovation grants

The WA Public Libraries Strategy included the development of a system for the allocation of annual State Government funding which enable local governments to make decisions about allocating some of the funding to technological infrastructure, programming, and other priorities in addition to library materials purchasing.

Local Governments can apply for funding to be used to support library initiatives and public programs. Funding is also available to support professional development for library staff in regional and remote WA.
Applications for the 2022-23 public library grants have now closed. Applicants will be advised of the outcome of their submissions in July.
