Teen Read Week Activity Grant
Deadline: June 1, 2016
Through funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, YALSA will offer ten $1,000 grants to recognize outstanding Teen Read Week activities from its members.
The theme for Teen Read Week 2016 is a multi-lingual take on "Read for the fun of it!" Applicants for the grant should demonstrate how the funds will help support innovative reading or literacies programs aimed at the 22% of the nation's youth who speak a language other than English at home.
Individual library branches within a larger system are welcome to apply.
Libraries should be located within 20 miles of a Dollar General store (see Dollar General's Store Locator).
