Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant

The Osgood Public Library has five new computers for use by members of the public. These modern, up-to-date computers provide Internet access, word processing with templates for resumes and other commonly used documents, and access to databases such as INSPIRE and Ancestry Library Edition, along with much more. This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library. While the computers were purchased by the library, funding for the software and hardware installation and networking integration were paid for through the grant funds.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation's 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. Through grant making, policy development, and research, IMLS helps communities and individuals thrive through broad public access to knowledge, cultural heritage, and lifelong learning.
