>Grant Opportunity – We the People Bookshelf


The American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities are now accepting applications from school (K-12) and public libraries for the newest We the People Bookshelf. Part of the NEH’s We the People initiative, the Bookshelf is a grant program created to encourage young people to read and understand great literature while exploring themes in American history. Library systems and districts may submit a single application on behalf of up to 100 sites.

This year’s theme is A More Perfect Union. Public and school (K-12) libraries are invited to apply online from September 8, 2009 through January 29, 2010. In April, 2010, NEH and ALA will select 4,000 libraries to receive the A More Perfect Union Bookshelf. Those selected will be required to use the Bookshelf selections in programs for young readers in their communities. A list of titles included in the Bookshelf and a list of programming ideas are available on the grant website.
