FY13 Enrich Iowa Report sent to legislators, governor
Libraries tell compelling stories of how vital state funds are to providing services to Iowans
The FY13 Enrich Iowa Report was sent to members of the Iowa General Assembly and the governor's office on January 15, 2014. The report outlines how state funds are used by libraries each year to improve service in their communities.
Enrich Iowa includes:
- Direct State Aid for public libraries, intended to improve library services and reduce inequities among communities.
- Open Access which enables Iowans from participating libraries to check out physical materials at other participating libraries, thereby providing them with direct access to more materials and information resources.
- Interlibrary Loan Reimbursement which provides Iowans with equal access to library resources by encouraging and supporting interlibrary loan among all types of libraries.
In addition to a link to the whole report, each legislator received an individual account of how libraries in his/her district used Direct State Aid money.
