Public Library Applies for Collection Development Grant The Public Library has submitted two grant applications to the California State Library for specially funded collection development projects. The first grant would enhance the Library’s Chinese language collection by providing one-time funding ($3,000) for the purchase and cataloging of materials. The second grant would allow the Library to better serve the business community by giving library card holders access to two special in-depth databases over the Internet, along with funding ($3,000- $6,000) for the purchase of related materials and the possibility of several business-related speakers. The awards of these grants will be announced this summer.
