Deadline: August 28, 2020
Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) with the goal of helping libraries engage their communities in programs and conversations that address the climate crisis.
The pilot program project will fund film screenings, community dialogues and related events based on local interest in 20 public libraries and 5 academic libraries. Each selected library will receive a $1,000 programming grant; five documentaries/docudramas with public performance rights (PPR) on DVD and/or streaming; digital promotional materials for local program publicity; access to online resources developed to support local programs and events, including in-person webinars for library project directors; support from Communities Responding to Emergency Weather (CREW) to designate your library as a Climate Resilience Hub; and collaboration and networking opportunities as part of the 25-library Resilient Communities cohort. A suite of free programming resources about the climate crisis will be available to all libraries.
