Support for K-12 School Libraries in Low-Income Communities

A grant opportunity to share in the community...

Laura Bush Foundation for America's Libraries
The goal of the Laura Bush Foundation for America's Libraries is to provide print books to the K-12 school libraries and students that need them the most. Grants of up to $5,000 are available to update, extend, and diversify the book collections of school libraries throughout the United States. Only schools where a minimum of 80% of the student body qualifies for the federal Free or Reduced Lunch Program are eligible to apply. Funds are provided solely for print or Braille volumes, audio-books, e-books, or magazines/serials copies or subscriptions; requests for staffing, shelving, furniture, equipment, software, videos, classroom book sets, or exams are not considered. All grants are made to individual schools rather than to school districts, foundations, or other entities. The application deadline is December 2, 2013. Online application information is available on the Foundation’s website.
