"(b) It is therefor the purpose of this title (1) to promote the extension of public library services to Indian people living on or near reservations; (2) to provide incentives for the establishment and expansion of tribal library programs; and (3) to improve the administration and implementation of library services for Indians by providing funds to establish and support ongoing library programs. "(c) The Secretary shall carry out a program of making grants from allotments under section 5(c)(1) to Indian tribes that have submitted an approved application under section 403 for library services to Indians living on or near reservations. "(d) The Secretary shall carry out a program of making special project grants from funds available under section 5(c)(2) to Indian tribes that have submitted approved plans for the provision of library services as described in section 404.
