Two of nine libraries in Michigan receiving Improving Access to Information grants are in Livingston County.

The Howell Carnegie District Library is receiving $25,000 to digitize and expand access to a collection of historic photo negatives, while the Fowlerville District Library is receiving a $15,669 grant to expand access to ebooks through popup library wifi hotspots.

“This is great news for the Fowlerville and Howell communities,” said State Sen. Lana Theis, R-Brighton. “These grants will be a big help to the libraries as they continually work to broaden and improve people’s access to their outstanding services. I appreciate the Department of Education and the Library of Michigan for supporting our part of the state.”

According to the state library, the IAI grants support programs designed to increase access by improving literacy, provide broader access to special or historic collections, or improve digital access and inclusion.

The Library of Michigan is an agency within the Michigan Department of Education. For more information, visit www.Michigan.gov/LibraryOfMichigan.
