>Grant Opportunity – We the People Bookshelf

>

The American Library Association’s (ALA) Public Programs Office (PPO) is pleased to partner with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for the fifth We the People Bookshelf project. Part of the NEH’s We the People initiative, the Bookshelf is a grant program created to encourage young people to read and understand great literature while exploring themes in American history.

This year’s theme is Created Equal. Public and school (K-12) libraries are invited to apply online from September 10, 2007 through January 25, 2008. In spring 2008, NEH and ALA will select 3,000 libraries to receive the Created Equal Bookshelf. Those selected will be required to use the Bookshelf selections in programs for young readers in their communities. A list of titles included in the Bookshelf and a list of programming ideas are available on the grant website.
