The State Library of Louisiana will use funds to support the goals of their Five-Year Plan for FY 2018-2022, which reflect the purposes and priorities of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). In Louisiana, specific goals address 1) Developing a competent, literate and knowledgeable citizenry that can benefit from increased educational opportunities and a lifelong love of reading and learning; 2) Encouraging digital and information literacy among the general population and facilitating Louisiana residents in taking advantage of all benefits of technology, thus decreasing the Digital Divide; and 3) Increasing the capacity of Louisiana libraries to meet the needs of their communities and to make the public library the center for civic engagement.
