Nine Kentucky library staff members have been awarded tuition reimbursement grants to support their pursuit of graduate library science degrees to better serve customers. Among the recipients is Danielle Manning with the Taylor County Public Library.
The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives (KDLA), an agency of the Kentucky Education and Labor Cabinet (KELC), chooses the recipients through a competitive application process. Each grant provides up to $2,000 per semester and is contingent upon achievement of a final grade of A or B for each course. The staff members agree to continue working in Kentucky libraries for at least 12 months after obtaining their degrees.
Funding for these grants comes from the Institute of Museum and Library Services’ (IMLS) Grants to States Program, the largest source of federal funding support for library services in the United States.
Graduate School Tuition Reimbursement Grants were awarded to the following recipients:
Lejla Bilanovic, Louisville Free Public Library
Lisa Clark, Kenton County Public Library
Sarah Garrett, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives
Cathrine Giles, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives
Holly Howard, Bath County Memorial Library
Danielle Manning, Taylor County Public Library
Katherine Sallee, Campbell County Public Library
Rachael Sullivan, Spencer County Public Library
George “Grady” Wilson, McCreary County Public Library
KDLA provides equitable access to quality library and information resources and services, as well as helps public agencies ensure that legislatively mandated documentation of government programs is created, efficiently maintained, and made accessible.
