Libri Foundation Disaster Relief Grants

Public Librarians (including school/public Community Libraries):

The Libri Foundation is offering a limited number of special non-matching BOOKS FOR CHILDREN grants to libraries serving rural communities (serving a population under 10,000 – and especially libraries serving fewer than 5,000 population)  affected by recent floods or other natural disasters. Library grant recipients will be able to select $700 worth of new, quality hardcover children’s books from a list provided by the Foundation.

No matching funds required. Libraries are qualified on an individual basis.

Application deadlines in 2012 are: January 23 (for January 31 grant awards) and May 15 (for May 31 awards).

For more information and application forms:

Feel free to call me if you have questions.
