Pushing the Limits Library Grants



Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing and discussion series for rural libraries. The application deadline for the 2013 grants is May 15, 2013, grant awards announced on June 21, 2013.In the Spring of 2012, Twenty small and rural public libraries in fifteen states were selected as pilot sites to host “Pushing the Limits”, a four-part reading, viewing and discussion series for adults. Each library received a $2,500 grant from the National Science Foundation, and building on the experience of the pilot sites, the program will be expanded up to 75 additional rural libraries throughout the nation.

“The discussion was lively with just about everyone participating with their views and opinions about the book, the author, and the video. I know some of them were not quite sure in the beginning what the experience and journey would be like, but soon they all were very excited and contributed so much to the discussion”. – Linda Burns, Cross Plains Public Library
