SUMMARY

In order to be eligible for fund distribution, public libraries must be legally established and meet statutory requirements. Generally, see Neb. Rev. Stat. 51-201, Neb. Rev. Stat. 51-202, and Neb. Rev. Stat. 51-203. Libraries must submit an application before the deadline (December 31, 2021). The formula for public and tribal libraries is a base amount of $3,750, plus a per capita amount of .275 per capita. The formula for institutional libraries is a base amount of $1,500, plus a per capita payment of $2.50 per capita (based on the average resident population). The following is a list of libraries and the funding amount they will receive if they meet the requirements and complete the application process (NOTE: If we've missed your library, and you are in fact a legally established Nebraska public, institutional, or tribal library, please contact us):
