The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation are seeking innovative and literacy-focused Teen Read Week™ programming proposals. Each of the 10 winning libraries will receive a $1,000 grant to incorporate into this year’s Teen Read Week (October 12-18), which will be centered around the theme, “Turn Dreams into Reality”.
YALSA is encouraging libraries to submit innovative proposals that are directed toward underserved teen populations, including but not limited to, teens with disabilities and teens who speak English as a second language. There are a few eligibility requirements, including YALSA membership; for complete rules and to submit an application, visit the Teen Read Week Grants site. Proposals are due by June 1.
