Washington, DC—The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) announced today grants serving 242 federally-recognized tribes and Alaska Native villages and corporations and totaling $1,672,000 for the Native American Library Services Basic Grant and Basic Grant with Education/Assessment Option Program.

"These small grants go a long way to help ensure libraries deliver core services for American Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages," said IMLS Director Susan Hildreth. "Libraries use the grants to buy library materials, fund salaries and training, provide Internet connectivity and computers, and much more to help meet the informational, educational, and cultural needs of tribal communities."
