Are prison libraries can apply this grant?
Maria Lynch

We received a PPP loan to help us. How do we effect that in the application? Are we still eligible?

Don Essex
44:32
Does the project I want funding for have to be directly related to the budget cut? For example, if my budget cut is staffing or collections, can I apply for money for technology?
Kristen Suagee-Beauduy
51:51
The tribe I work for has 4 libraries, one academic and 3 public. The Tohono O'odham Nation's land base is the size of Connecticut and we serve 28,000 tribal members plus anyone who works or lives in these communities. Would you consider all four tribal libraries part of the same system?
Pam Abraham
53:41
What are considered special libraries?
Kerrie Wilkes
55:56
I have a question about operating budgets. I work for SUNY (state University of NY) My cuts have been to my materials budget, but not to my employees. Does my 5% decrease need to be overall? We did not receive contractual raises, but salaries were not cut.
Iris Fiallos
56:02
We realized we needed more support technology such as kiosks where students can self-serve or print. Can the funds be used for those services?

Thank you for clarifying
Katie Roberts
01:09:49
can you repeat the consortium/district independent funding answer. if we are a SCHOOL DISTRICT, but the budgets for individial school libraries are individually set, how do we apply?
Janine Strohm
01:09:51
If your operational budget was reduced by more than 5%, but you applied for and received a PPP (paycheck protection plan) loan/grant are you still eligible?
Alicia Martinez
01:12:02
Thank you for very helpful.
Karen Benson
01:13:20
Ours is a small rural municipal library. Our service area includes small surrounding towns and students from those towns attend school in our city's school district. Therefore the school district data better reflects demographics than the U.S. census demographics solely for our city. Can we report the school district demographic data and explain it in the narrative?
Margaret Lejuste
01:16:49
