Apply for a 2013 Dí­a Mini-Grant!

2013 El dí­a de los niños/El dí­a de los libros (Children’s Day/Book Day)ALSC is now accepting applications for mini-grants intended to prepare libraries to incorporate Dí­a into their existing programs, throughout the year. Libraries will use these mini-grants to initiate a Dí­a Family Book Club Program. These mini-grants are part of ALSC’s Everyone Reads @ your library grant, funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.

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. Up to 12 mini-grants will be awarded at $5,000 each. In addition to these mini-grants, funding from this grant will also allow ALSC to create a Dí­a Family Book Club Toolkit that will be accessible to all. The deadline to accept mini-grant applications is Friday, February 1, 2013.
