DCMS/Wolfson Public Libraries Challenge Fund

The DCMS/Wolfson Public Libraries Challenge Fund was established in July 1997 to enhance the services and facilities provided by public libraries in England. The Fund ran for five years from 1997-98 providing over £13 million funding for 138 public library based projects and has now finished.

The Department for Culture, Media and Sport contributed £2 million a year and the Wolfson Foundation £1 million a year. MLA administered the assessment and payment of grants on behalf of the DCMS and the Wolfson Foundation.
