LSTA 5 year plans

Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) is funding that is provided through the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services to every state through a formula. Hawaii receives about $1.2 million each year. The funding is used for technology, internet connectivity, and digital resources to ensure access to resources on all six (6) islands is equitable.

In order to receive the funding, HSPLS is required to submit an LSTA Five Year Plan. The following includes the most recent and past plans.
