Small-town public libraries have until Oct. 1 to submit applications for grants from the Kreutz Bennett Donor-Advised Fund.

The fund was established to provide support for public libraries located in communities with populations of less than 3,000.

The late Shirley Kreutz Bennett, of Lincoln, established the fund through the Nebraska Community Foundation because she wanted to help smaller communities gain better access to knowledge and information.

All grants require a certain level of matching funds and evidence that the project has broad community support. Approximately $70,000 is available each year. Grant seekers are encouraged to review the guidelines and application procedures at www.nebcommfound.org/fund/kreutzbennett.

Earlier this year, grants were approved in Albion, Ashland, Hildreth, Mitchell, Osmond, Valley, Walthill and Wausa.
