The Public Library Improvement Fund (PLIF) supports creative and innovative library projects throughout Scotland. Awarded every year, the Scottish Library and Information Council administers the Fund on behalf of the Scottish Government.

Since its inception in 2006 PLIF has played a significant part in transforming Scotland’s public library landscape. It plays a key role in helping library services achieve the vision set out by Ambition & Opportunity: A Strategy for Public Libraries in Scotland and millions of pounds have been invested in pioneering projects. This in turn has had an enormous impact on both individuals and communities alike.
