Call for Applicants: ALA Libraries Transform Communities Engagement Grant (Deadline Monday, February 3)

(via RAILS)

ALA invites library workers to apply for a new annual grant to support innovative and meaningful community engagement efforts in libraries. The Libraries Transform Communities Engagement Grant will provide $2,000 for a school, public, academic, tribal, or special library to expand its community engagement efforts. Libraries are invited to apply by designing and outlining activities for a library-led community engagement project.

Project activities to be covered by the grant may include developing community engagement programs and services; partnering with a community agency that builds the capacity of the community to address an important concern/issue, or creating a program or event that connects the library to a community-identified aspiration or concern.

Applications will be accepted through February 3. View the full award guidelines and apply online.
