    Construction grants for rural libraries

    I have been looking all over for a grant that will help with the hard costs of construction for a library in a rural town and all I have come up with is one which pays 20% of construction costs. Is anyone aware of other grants available?
    Trying to get my grubby hands on as much stimulus money as I can.:D

    I'm certainly no expert, but the library district at a previous employer of mine is sure to know based on their ability to fundraise and the type of building they are constructing.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
