WASHINGTON (AP) - A total of nearly $1 million has been awarded to seven museum projects in Ohio to help improve learning experiences, care for collections and address community needs.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services recently announced the grants totaling over $945,000. Institutions receiving the grants include the Massillon Museum, the Columbus Museum of Art, the Springfield Museum of Art and the Oberlin Heritage Center. The Columbus Museum of Art, the Zoological Society of Cincinnati, and the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden also received grants.

The institute says the grants support projects including exhibits and partnerships to reach underserved populations. Some will be used to conserve threatened or fragile collections, including zoos’ living collections.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services provides support for 123,000 libraries and 35,000 museums.
