The Millennium Project for Public Libraries

The Millennium Project for Public Libraries was a national grant initiative designed to help libraries enrich their core collections of American literature and provide an opportunity to offer library programs that enhance the public's appreciation of great American writing.

The 800 libraries participating in The Millennium Project hosted a program or event to increase community awareness of the nature and content of the Library of America volumes, encouraged patrons to read the volumes and promoted their long-term use.
