ALA's Media Literacy @ Your Library Grants

Deadline: September 11, 2017.

Public libraries are invited to apply to be part of Media Literacy @ Your Library, a learning and prototyping project. The goal of this project is to train library workers to better equip the public to be discerning news consumers. ALA and the Center for News Literacy (CNL) will work with teams from five libraries to adapt existing media literacy training to serve the needs of public librarians and the communities they serve.

The five selected cohort library teams will attend in-person training and conduct related public programs in their communities. Team members will provide feedback on the training and serve as advisors to and beta testers for the development of a corresponding web-based learning experience. This grant opportunity seeks engagement from libraries willing to explore, implement, adapt and — most importantly — provide candid feedback on training that will ultimately enrich the field and better position libraries to meet community needs.

Media Literacy @ Your Library is a project of the American Library Association in collaboration with the Center for News Literacy, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Democracy Fund, and the Rita Allen Foundation.
