Library Construction Grants

The Library Construction Grant program is a competitive dollar-for-dollar matching grant program. The program provides public libraries with funding for renovation, construction, and improvement projects that result in more accessible library facilities. Projects may:
  • Remove architectural barriers from a library building or site;
  • Remediate conditions hazardous to health or safety;
  • Renovate or expand an existing building for use as a library; or
  • Construct a new library.

The program is authorized biennially by the Minnesota Legislature and funded from the sale of General Revenue Obligation Bonds.
