National Center for Family Literacy Library Grants

The National Center for Family Literacy (NCFL)— $10,000 grants for libraries now available

Do you have a great library literacy program that serves families or an innovative plan to start one? NCFL invites libraries nationwide to apply for the 2012 Libraries and Families Award, made possible by Better World Books. Three U.S.-based library literacy programs that serve families will win $10,000 each and scholarships to the National Conference on Family Literacy in 2012 and 2013.

Is your library literacy program making a difference for families? Do you have a unique and innovative approach? Both previously existing and new programs can apply. The online application deadline is 11:59 p.m. on February 6, 2012. Winners will be notified in late February or early March. Review the application criteria, and then submit your application!
