ALSC Baker & Taylor Summer Reading Program Grant

The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) is accepting applications for the Baker & Taylor Summer Reading Program Grant. The Summer Reading Program Grant is designed to encourage reading programs for children in public libraries by providing $3,000 in financial assistance, while recognizing ALSC members for outstanding program development. Due to COVID-19, the ALSC Programs and Services Recognition Committee will consider proposals for virtual programming, as well as in-person programs which can take into account public health and safety measures. Application due date: November 15, 2020.


YALSA Great Books Giveaway Competition

Applications are being accepted for the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) Great Books Giveaway Competition. Each year, for review and nomination purposes, the YALSA office receives approximately 3,000 newly published books, videos, CD's and audiocassettes from producers and publishers -- materials that have been targeted primarily towards young adults. YALSA and the cooperating publishers are offering one year's worth of review materials as a contribution to up to three libraries in need through the Great Books Giveaway Competition. Application deadline: December 1, 2020.


Baker & Taylor/YALSA Collection Development Grant

YALSA is also accepting applications for the Baker & Taylor/YALSA Collection Development Grant program. The program awards $1,000 for collection development to YALSA members who represent a public library and who work directly with young adults ages 12 to 18. Up to two grants will be awarded annually. Application deadline: December 1, 2020.



All the best,
