To support continuing education (CE) for member library staff throughout our service area, RAILS offers a limited number of grants to fund continuing education events.  This grant opportunity is open to RAILS libraries, networking groups, and library consortia.  To qualify, CE events must be made available to all RAILS member libraries and be of interest to a wide range of library staff.
These grants will change beginning in July 2019 to focus more on CE events that help libraries of all types to tell their stories and promote their value. Details will be available soon.

Those interested in applying should review the conditions described below to ensure eligibility. Priority will be given to applicants that have not received a grant in the past 12 months. 

For Fiscal Year 2019, there will be six award periods. The application deadline dates are:

  • Award Period 1: July 31, 2018
  • Award Period 2: September 28, 2018
  • Award Period 3: November 30, 2018
