About The Fund

The Scottish Government has created a COVID Relief Fund of £1.25 million for public libraries in recognition of the essential role public libraries play with local communities.

The purpose of the Fund is to re-connect communities with their libraries. Priority will be given to applications which support deprived areas and communities. 

The Scottish Library and Information Council is administering the Public Library Covid Relief Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government. SLIC is working with each Scottish public library service to assist with applications.
