ALA Great Stories Club Grant
Deadline: April 15, 2016
The Great Stories Club gives at-risk, troubled youth the opportunity to read, reflect, and share ideas on topics that resonate with them. Organized by the American Library Association, the current theme is The Art of Change: Creation, Growth and Transformation.
Libraries selected to participate in the Great Stories Club “Change” series will receive copies of three theme-related books to use in reading and discussion groups of 6 to 10 people; travel and lodging support to attend a national orientation workshop in June 2016; and a variety of programming support materials. All types of U.S. libraries located within or working in partnership with an organization that serves at-risk youth are eligible to apply.
