Subject: [alsc-l] Four (!) ALSC Grants Available - Deadline December 1

These four ALSC grants offer a great opportunity for you and your library!  Application material and information is available at http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/alsc/awardsgrants/profawards/  or follow the links for the individual grants listed below. The deadline is December 1, 2010.

Each year the ALSC office receives almost 3,000 newly published books, videos, audiobooks and recordings from children's trade publishers for award and notables consideration.  At the end of the year, after the awards have been given out, ALSC selects three libraries to receive a Bookapalooza collection of these materials (estimated to be worth $10,000 each) to be used in a way that creatively enhances their library service to children and families.
