As 2016 approaches, the Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICfL) is preparing for another year of helping libraries build the capacity to better serve their clientele. Recently, ICfL’s Board of Library Commissioners submitted budget enhancement requests (requests for new funding) to the State of Idaho Division of Financial Management (DFM) for the next fiscal year, July 2016–June 2017.

Here is how it works:
- 17% increase in use
- 38 cents per login
- 295 people trained
