Accelerating Promising Practices for Small Libraries (APP) was a special initiative of the National Leadership Grants for Libraries Program. The goal of this initiative was to support projects that strengthen the ability of small and/or rural libraries and archives to serve their communities and to build grantee capacity through participation in a community of practice. IMLS invited applications that focused on the following topics:
- transforming school library practice
- community memory
- digital inclusion
APP was a pilot initiative launched in 2018 as a commitment to support small and rural libraries. After two pilot years, a program evaluation is underway to understand how this funding opportunity met the needs of these organizations, and how IMLS can best serve grantees and their communities.
