Penguin Random House Grants for Small & Rural Libraries

The Association for Rural & Small Libraries and Penguin Random House are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021 ARSL/PRH Grants for Rural & Small Libraries! The following libraries all received either monetary or in-kind awards in support of their proposed projects.

There is no such thing as an undeserving library, and our Review Team (who are themselves library workers) sincerely wished they could recommend every application we received for an award. We look forward to watching our award recipients’ projects unfold, and to future grant opportunities in partnership with Penguin Random House!
