PPL was able to buy a bulk order of 200 BinaxNow kits from this vendor a handful of weeks ago:
FYI they are experiencing some shipping delays right now (but who isn’t these days?)

Subject: Re: [MELIBS-L] purchasing covid tests

I am having a tough time sourcing tests for a large purchase for libraries but I am continuing to investigate options.
Most MHEC resources are out of stock from what I saw. You may be able to find individual 2 packs of home tests.
I would look to local pharmacies but also look for the announcement for a new federal program where individuals (such as library staff) can The website should launch next week so all Americans can order the free tests.  I am watching for that.

For those who have purchased covid tests for your libraries, where is the best place to purchase them? I am thinking of using some unused ARPA money for this purpose. I know that MHEC recently announced that we could purchase through some of their vendors, but I did not keep those emails.
