Tennessee State Library and Archives

Log Number: LS-250238-OLS-21

The Tennessee State Library and Archives will use funds under the American Rescue Plan Act to help communities respond directly and immediately to the pandemic, as well as to related economic and community needs through equitable approaches in digital inclusion and library services. They will continue to support the goals of their Five-Year Plan for FY 2018-2022. In Tennessee, specific goals address all Tennessee residents: 1) Having the reading skills, information resources, and library services needed to succeed in school, at work, and in their daily lives; 2) Being able to locate and access library and information resources that are relevant to their lives through the provision of traditional reading materials, non-print media, online and downloadable resources, and electronic networks; and 3) Benefiting from enhanced library and information services because library staff members have the knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to offer high-quality 21st century library services.
