(3) Commonwealth Libraries policies concerning the grants for public library facilities.
(4) A plan for Commonwealth Libraries administration of the program, including provision of technical assistance, monitoring of ongoing projects and evaluation of completed projects.
(b) Grants to municipalities for public library planning, acquisition, development or rehabilitation will be made in accordance with the long-range plan.
(c) Commonwealth Libraries will incur administrative expenses to meet costs of activities listed in the component of the long-range plan described in subsection (a)(4), to meet costs of planning, and to meet other costs of grants administration.
(d) Commonwealth Libraries will publish the long-range plan and subsequent modifications to the long-range plan in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
