>Grant Opportunity – Libri Foundation Books for Children

>

The Libri Foundation is a nationwide non-profit organization which donates new, quality, hardcover children’s books to small, rural public libraries in the United States through its Books for Children program. The Foundation awards grants three times a year.

The librarian of each library participating in the Books for Children program selects the books her library will receive from a booklist provided by the Foundation. The 700-plus fiction and nonfiction titles on the booklist have been judged as outstanding or highly recommended by recognized authorities in the library and education fields and have been published in the last 3 years or are classics. The guidelines and application can be found here: http://www.librifoundation.org/apps.html.

The Foundation will match any amount of money raised by your local sponsors from $50 to $350 on a 2-to-1 ratio. Thus, your library could receive up to $1,050 worth of new children’s books (about 70 books). Local sponsors have five months (or longer, if necessary) after their library has been selected as a participant in the Books for Children program to raise the matching funds. Deadlines: Annually, January 15th, April 15th, and August 15th.
