>Grant Opportunity – Arthur’s 10th Anniversary Literacy Initiative


In the spring of 2006, Arthur marked a milestone that few children’s—or adult—series ever attain: ten seasons on the air! To celebrate the occasion, the WGBH Educational Foundation is pleased to launch Arthur’s 10th Anniversary Literacy Initiative, a new outreach effort targeting public libraries.

WGBH will award grants in the amount of $1,000 each to 15 public libraries, asking them to design projects using the Arthur resources and targeting parents and children, including soon-to-be as well as independent readers. We seek libraries that represent diversity in size, location, and population served (with an emphasis on reaching at-risk audiences), and will also consider the creativity of their approach and the strength of their community partners (including local PBS stations), which will be essential to access families not currently served by the library.
We invite you to apply for an Arthur’s 10th Anniversary Literacy Initiative grant. Applications can be found online and are due by Monday, December 18, 2006. If you have questions on the grant application, please feel free to contact Natalie Hebshie, Arthur Outreach Coordinator, at 617-300-3639 or by e-mail at
