Professional Development Grants from Washington State Library

Washington State Library (WSL) funds Professional Development (PD) Grants for all library staff that work at least ten hours in a library. These awards use federal funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Sciences and Technology Act (LSTA).

Your organization can apply for awards to send library staff to conferences, workshops or seminars.

We accept applications  90 days to 15 days before an event.

We encourage everyone to try to take advantage of savings like early bird registration and group rates.
