>The Distribution to Underserved Communities Library Program (DUC) is pleased to announce the 2007 Poulin Project! We hope you will participate in this unique program that distributes literature books to libraries, schools, hospitals, and community centers in New York State completely free of charge.
The Al Poulin Jr. Independent Publishers Development Project² is run by the DUC in collaboration with The New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) in honor of the late poet, translator and founder of BOA Editions, Ltd.
The project supports independent publishers from New York State by introducing the work of hundreds of contemporary writers and poets to new audiences, while also helping local libraries to diversify their collections. BOA Editions, Ltd is just one of the many publishers that donate new books on literature, poetry and essays each year. Below is a list of a few recent contributors.
Poulin Project books are distributed in standard sets of approximately 40 titles. We recommend them for an audience with a reading comprehension level of high school students or above. These volumes arrive within a short period of time because they are less labor intensive to process than the hundreds of customized orders for art books from the DUC.
