Better World Books/NCFL Libraries and Families Grants
Better World Books and the National Center for Family Literacy will reward and enhance existing family programming and expand literacy-building practices of families in library settings. Three $10,000 grants are awarded each year to connect more families to their local libraries and expand their literacy efforts in new and innovative ways.
One winner will be chosen from each of the three following categories:
- Local Friends of the Library programs
- Public/academic libraries
- Urban libraries
In addition, award recipients will receive scholarships to attend the National Conference on Family Literacy in 2011. More information and the online application are available at http://www.famlit.org/BWB-library-award.
