How are you using your 2019 Youth Services Support Grant?

The Lena Public Library recently brought in The NEW Zoomobile. 146 people (99 children) enjoyed some animals up close and personal!

How are you using your 2019 Youth Services Support Grant? We'd love to hear your stories - so please email us a short recap and any photos or perhaps a video of how your libraries are using your 2019 grants, and we'll add them to the 2019 Youth Services Support Grants web page. If you don't have photos, a simple description is fine - we can make it work.

Please also remember to submit your Youth Services Support Grant Evaluation form once funds have been used (due by end of year). Submissions can be emailed to
