Califa invites California public libraries to apply for this Open+ Pilot to receive funding to increase access to physical services through more open hours. Whether it's to provide early morning access to high speed wi-fi and other office needs, or to provide access to the hold shelf, 10 libraries will each install Bibliotheca Open+ technologies in one branch location to provide 12-15 more hours of service per week. This grant is effective for the fiscal period April 5, 2020 through March 31, 2022.
