Yes, it is open for all public libraries to apply for the microgrants, but for the Google Tour they are preselected sites. Three in each state of different sizes, demographics
John Sandstrom

Too bad it is Public Libraries only. As a Land Grant institution, I have more capacity for this type of program then the local public library does.

Oh good it isn't just me

@john in San Jose what I'd suggest to you is to connect with your local library

Wow! You were in my state. I wish I had known.

How much lead time? Some libraries have to take requests through a development office and that can add weeks. Also, can Friend Groups supporting a public library apply?
