Posted: Nov. 2, 2010
Deadline: Nov. 29, 2010
Are you planning programming for youth from diverse cultures in your community?
Beginning today, the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) is pleased to accept applications for mini-grants intended to expand youth literacy programs to include and celebrate a variety of cultures in public libraries. Up to 15 mini-grants will be awarded: up to eight at $4,000 each; and up to seven at $6,000 each.
Intended as an expansion of El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Día), the mini-grants will be awarded to libraries that demonstrate a need to better address the diverse backgrounds within their communities.
The mini-grants are part of the Everyone Reads @ your library grant awarded to ALSC from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. For more information, and the application form, go to http://everyonereads.zhost.net.
And, please share your diversity programming experiences here, so we can help celebrate your successes.
