ALSC Budget Committee: Payday for Your Library

The ALSC Budget Committee has created a series of infographics about money and ALSC, designed to give our members a little more insight into our finances. The first one looked at our division’s revenues and expenses (check it out here). The second one offered guidance on funding available through ALSC and ALA for membership, conference attendance and more (take a look here).

Welcome to round three! Ever wondered what ALA can offer not just you but your library? Several divisions of ALA, including ALSC, provide grants for materials, programming and more. Check out our infographic for ideas on how to secure some support for your youth-focused library.

If you have any budget or finance questions, pop them in the comments or join us at a Budget Committee meeting!
