Grants to Kansas public, school, and academic libraries to reimburse the purchase of eligible books by Kansans or about Kansas. The purpose of this grant is to promote lifelong learning, literacy, and access to library materials for state residents. This non-competitive grant allows libraries to purchase books included in the 2017 Kansas Notable Books list.

Each participating Kansas library will be reimbursed for the purchase of a single copy, in a given format, of any or all of the books on the 2017 Kansas Notable Books List. It is not required for all books to be selected from the list but those which are appropriate for your institution. Any shipping costs, sales tax and/or protective book covers are the responsibility of individual recipient library. Only the actual cost of the book will be reimbursed with grant funds.

The Kansas Notable Books List is the annual recognition of 15 outstanding titles by Kansas authors or about Kansas. It is the only honor for Kansas books by Kansans, highlighting our lively contemporary writing community and encouraging readers to enjoy some of the best writing of the authors among us.

Grantees must purchase books and send invoices/receipts to the State Library on or before November 15, 2017.

To be eligible, a library must be a public library, a public or private academic library, or a school library with a full-time licensed school media specialist in the building. Additionally, eligible libraries must be a participating KICNET and/or OCLC library (participate in statewide interlibrary loan).
