The online application for the New York State Family Literacy Library Services Program is now open to public libraries and public library systems in New York State. Applications will be accepted through Friday December 10, 2010 at 5:00 PM.
The New York State Family Literacy Library Services Program helps libraries provide family literacy services to children and their parents or caregivers. Family literacy projects in libraries teach parents and caregivers how to nurture literacy skills in very young and school age children. Libraries that focus on family literacy provide materials and programming that encourage interest in reading and literacy-related activities. Instructional workshops and literacy-rich environments in the public library will help expand family use of the library. Priority for funding is given to projects that include partnerships between libraries or library systems and community organizations. In previous years successful partnerships have been established with schools, preschools, weekend and summer learning programs, museums, public television, historical societies, environmental centers, agencies and cultural organizations.
