A new grant entitled, “The American Dream Starts @ your library,” funded by the Dollar General Foundation seeks to help public libraries increase their literacy services to adult English language learners. The grant will give 15 libraries a one-time award of $5,000 each.
Grants will be made to public libraries with a demonstrated need to provide literacy services to adult immigrants’ resources to expand or add literacy services for adult English language learners. To qualify, public libraries must be located within 20 miles of a Dollar General Store, distribution center or corporate office. Info and application can be found here. Deadline: January 31, 2008
