System Grants

The Central Kansas Library System is pleased to provide System grants to all member libraries in 2016.

The System Grant Questionnaire, Form #1 and Form #2 must be received or submitted electronically no later than February 12, 2016.

  • The Questionnaire, Form #1 and Form #2 are available as separate online forms. You will receive your responses to these forms as pdf documents in the email after submissions. This year the online forms are linked. You have the option to complete and submit each form and come back at a later time to complete the other forms, OR after submitting a form you may click continue and will be directed to the next form. You will receive a separate email response for each form.
  • The Questionnaire may be submitted by paper, but we strongly prefer that you do it online (which proves to be much easier for you and CKLS to handle.) Please call and tell us if you have to use the paper forms.
  • You have two options for submitting the 2016 budget. You may mail a paper copy to CKLS OR you may email an electronic copy.
  • If you need assistance, please call a consultant. We are always happy to give you step-by-step instructions.
