The Cranbury Public Library submitted an application for a grant from the NJ Library Construction Bond Act in March. The application dead line was extended due to COVID-19 but is on target for a September decision.
On January 6, 2020 the Solicitation for Grant Applications for the NJ Library Construction Bond Act funds was published on the NJ State Library website. Applications will be accepted March 9, 2020 through 4:00 p.m. EDT April 6, 2020.
The Library Board of Trustees is working on the application and plans to submit it as soon as possible.
The regulations for the NJ Library Construction Bond Act were published first in July. After a 60 day comment period the final regulations were released on November 4, 2019. To read the full regulations and comments go to NJ Library Construction Bond Act.
We are looking forward to receiving the application for grant funds soon. Once received the Library Board will have 90 days to submit the completed application. The state will then have 60 days to award grant funds. Let’s hope 2020 is the year we break ground!

The latest news from the New Jersey State Library is that the development of draft regulations for the New Jersey Construction Bond Act is on track for release in early summer. Library directors have been sent a short survey asking them if their library has a proposed library project, if so what type, and the estimated cost. The survey was filled out immediately and returned. All involved are looking forward to finally applying for grant funding this summer and building a new library in 2020!
