State Collection Development Grants

The Nevada State Legislature has allocated funds for the public libraries in the State Collection Development Grant Program. The first allocation, $250,000 in the 1995 session, was intended for the rural areas only. These funds are distributed to public libraries in Nevada, based on their own local spending for collection development. Utilizing the formula based on these expenditures (NRS 378.087), the smaller libraries receive a greater proportionate amount than the libraries with the larger budgets.
