Rural Oregon Libraries Qualify For Event Grants

Oregon Humanities announced recently that they will award $25,000 in funding to enable rural and rural-adjacent Oregon libraries to create and host events in their own communities. Consider This Mini Grants of up to $2,000 per event are available to Oregon libraries who want to create and host events centered on the theme of “People, Place, and Power.”

“Grantees are welcome to interpret this theme and develop topics that are relevant to their communities. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, community care, collective power, and civic engagement in rural areas. Libraries, including branches, located in (or adjacent to and serving) rural or frontier zip codes that have annual operating budgets of less than $1.5 million are eligible,” according to the organization’s website.

Applications are due by January 6, 2023. To learn more, visit
