Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries
DEADLINE: December 14, 2015
The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries, helps school libraries encourage and foster a love of reading, support student learning, and make books and reading materials available to students who otherwise would not have access to them. Grants of up to $7,000 will be awarded to help libraries in schools where 85 percent or more of students qualify for free or reduced lunches expand, update, and diversify their book collections.
Schools serving pre-K through grade 12 in all fifty states, the District of Columbia, and all American territories, as well as Department of Defense schools in other countries, are eligible to apply. This includes all public, private, parochial, charter, city, state, county, and reservation schools — including special schools, social services schools, and juvenile detention center schools in any jurisdiction that serves any combination of pre-kindergarten through high school students.
