Legacy Funding

This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities.

Minnesota’s 365 public libraries receive funding distributed through existing formulas to the 12 Minnesota Regional Library Systems to provide programs and services in four areas: arts (visual, performing and media), culture, literary and Minnesota history.
