Applications for the 2011 Better World Books/NCFL Libraries and Families Award
are now available! Through this opportunity, NCFL and Better World Books will reward and enhance existing family programming and expand literacy-building practices of families in library settings. The three $10,000 grants awarded each year will connect more families to their local libraries and expand their literacy efforts in new and innovative ways.
The deadline to apply is midnight EST on November 12, 2010. One winner will be chosen from each of the three following categories: local Friends of the Library programs, public/academic libraries and urban libraries. The winners also will receive scholarships to NCFL’s 2011 National Conference on Family Literacy which will take place April 3-5, 2011 in Louisville, KY.
