ALSC's Día Family Book Club Grants
Deadline: Feb. 22, 2016
The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) is accepting proposals for the 2016 Día Turns 20 mini-grants. Twenty grants to public libraries of $2,000 will help to celebrate the 20th anniversary of connecting children with diverse books through Día. This mini-grant is made possible by a generous donation from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation.
The Día Turns 20 mini-grant is part of the Children’s Day/Book Day or El día de los niños/El día de los libros initiative. This nationally recognized initiative emphasizes the importance of literacy for all children from all backgrounds, and 2016 marks the 20th year of its observance. Día is a daily commitment to linking children and their families to diverse books, languages and cultures. This is the second of two funding opportunities that ALSC has offered this year to help libraries celebrate Día all year. ALSC also manages the National Día Program Registry to help libraries and community partners share information about their Día programs throughout the year.
