IHLS Surplus Vehicles Grant

community outreach and mobile services
Monday, February 1, 2021

Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) is retiring five (5) well-cared-for surplus delivery vans at the end of 2020. To further portions of our mission, including supporting member libraries of all types in providing quality library services, facilitating access to shared resources, promoting innovation, and developing community partnerships, IHLS plans to grant these vehicles to member libraries to assist in their community outreach projects, especially those that expand Wi-Fi access within their communities.

Up to five awards will be granted, with recipients being transferred ownership of one or more IHLS surplus cargo van(s). Vehicles are to be used for the development or expansion of mobile library services and outreach.

Applying libraries must be public, school, academic, or special library members of IHLS.

The online application will close at the end of the day on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021.
