Hello fellow Oregon librarians,
If you've always wanted to host an author or illustrator visit, this may be
your opportunity! See below for information about the Association for
Library Service to Children's Maureen Hayes Author/Illustrator Award.
Applications are due Nov. 15.

The ALSC Grants Administration Committee is now accepting online
applications for the Maureen Hayes Author/Illustrator Award. This $4,000
award, made possible by an annual gift from Simon & Schuster Children’s
Publishing in honor of Maureen Hayes, brings together children and
nationally recognized authors/illustrators by funding an author/illustrator
visit to a library.

Please help us by spreading the word across your systems, state/regional
library associations, divisions/round tables, affiliate groups and other

Each application will be judged on the following:


   Reasons for the application. The applicant seeks to provide a visit from
   an author/illustrator who will speak to children who have not had the
   opportunity to hear a nationally known author/illustrator. Reasons for
   applying could include: particular contribution; a special celebration, etc.

   Facilities. The appropriateness, both in terms of capacity and

   Administrative support. The organization and administrative capabilities
   of the person or group submitting an application evident in the enclosed
   budget, and partially manifested in the presentation of the application

   Cooperation with other organizations. The applicant must work
   cooperatively with other types of libraries (academic, public and school)
   and bookstores within the local community to provide the author/illustrator
   visit, thereby also providing a broader audience.  The applicant must
   present the library's educational goals, as well as evidence of how those
   goals apply to the local community's educational goals. The extent to which
   meaningful cooperation among various local or area groups would suggest an
   ability to share responsibilities of personnel, time, and money needed to
   cover local expenses.

   Author/Illustrator visit visibility. Emphasis on the presentation as a
   distinctive event publicized to and open to all potential attendees in the
   area is a priority for each Award.

Applicants must be personal members of ALSC, as well as ALA members to
apply. Deadline for submissions is Nov. 15, 2019. For more information
about the award requirements and submitting the online application please
visit the Maureen Hayes Author/Illustrator Award Web page

look forward to hearing from you!

All the best,

Ariana Hussain
