The Alaska Online With Libraries (OWL) Program

OWL Technology Reimbursement Program

Temporary funding is available from the Alaska OWL Program to reimburse public libraries who want to upgrade their technology. Each library may spend up to $1,500, including shipping, on technology equipment. There are two conditions to receive reimbursement:

  1. Equipment must be for use in the public areas of your library and not intended for staff.
  2. Before making your purchase, you must receive approval from the OWL program manager.

To apply, fill out our application [Word document] and email it to Daniel Cornwall or fax it to 907-465-2151 with "Attention Daniel" on the cover sheet.

Applications are due by Friday, March 30. Review of applications will take place the first week of April. If your application meets our guidelines, we will send you written approval for your purchase. After receiving your equipment and/or software, send us your receipts for reimbursement (up to $1,500) from the Alaska Library Network.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions! Email Daniel Cornwall, OWL program manager.
