Continuing Education Grants
General Guidelines


The South Central Library System began to award grants in 1983 through an application process to staff and trustees of SCLS member libraries enabling them to participate in library related continuing education programs produced by organizations other than South Central.

The intent of this program is to supplement local continuing education efforts, not to supplant them. A lump sum has been proposed in the System's budget for its 53 libraries. Listed below is a limit, not a guaranteed amount for each library. Since 2012, requests for funds exceeded the amount available.

Libraries may also apply for a CE Grant to help fund a staff in-service or staff training workshop. Funds count towards a library's annual grant limit.
