A report outlining the uses and impacts of Enrich Iowa funding for Iowa libraries is now available. Enrich Iowa funding is appropriated annually by the Iowa Legislature and funds the Open Access, Interlibrary Loan and Direct State Aid programs offered to Iowa libraries.
The State Library administers the funding to libraries and is required by Iowa Code to submit a report each year to the Iowa General Assembly and Governor's Office on the uses and impacts of the Enrich Iowa funding.
The FY16 report consists of two parts: a fact-sheet style report gives an overview of the uses and impacts of Enrich Iowa Funding for the three library programs. The second file relates to the Direct State Aid program and details responses from Iowa public libraries on how funding was spent at each library. The report is organized alphabetically by county and then city.
