>Grant Opportunity – ALSC Light the Way


The “Light the Way: Library Outreach to the Underserved” grant is sponsored by Candlewick Press in honor of author Kate DiCamillo and the themes represented in her books. A $3000 grant will be awarded to a library with exceptional outreach to underserved populations.
The grant is administered by the Library Service to Special Population Children and Their Caregivers Committee (LSSPCC) of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association. The Committee’s function is to speak for special population children and their caregivers; these may include those who have learning or physical differences, those who are speaking English as a second language, those who are in a non-traditional school environment, those who are in non-traditional family settings (such as teen parents, foster children, children in the juvenile justice system, and children in gay and lesbian families), and those who need accommodation service to meet their needs.
The successful grant applicant will describe a program or service that will address one or more of the above special populations. The winning project should be well thought-out, doable, appropriate to the target population, and easily replicated by other libraries.
The grant application is available online here. Applications must be received by November 1, 2009.
