The Margaret Murray Grant 2021
The purpose of the Margaret Murray Grant is to advance library programming and literacy for Mississippi public libraries through activities sponsored by the local Friends of Mississippi Libraries chapters.

Margaret Murray, retired employee for the Mississippi Library Commission and liaison to the State Friends of Mississippi Libraries, actively supported local public libraries in the state of Mississippi to establish Friends of the Library chapters. Her efforts resulted in the establishment of over 100 local chapters. The State Friends support of local libraries has strengthened and enhanced communities around the state of Mississippi since 1972.

Funds are earmarked for programming, collection development, and literacy activities. Funds are not intended for administrative or operational use. Grants for 2021 are $500 and three chapters will be awarded. Successful applicants agree to match grant funds at the minimum of 10% ($50.00) in local financial support.

Deadline: February 26th, 2021.
Awards will be announced: April 2nd, 2021.
