United for Libraries Citizens-Save-Libraries Grants
Deadline: Cycle 1 grants April 15, 2013; Cycle 2 grants April 15, 2014.
United for Libraries has secured $75,000 from the Neal-Schuman Foundation to support library advocacy at the local level for libraries with troubled budgets. The Citizens-Save-Libraries grants will send expert advocates to 20 locations over the course of 2 years to help Friends of the Library groups, library directors and Trustees develop individual blueprints for advocacy campaigns to restore, increase or save threatened library budgets. Selected libraries will receive two days of on-site, in-person training.
