The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Programs and
Services Recognition Committee are now accepting online applications for
the ALSC/Baker & Taylor Summer Reading Grant. This $3,000 grant is designed
to encourage reading programs for children in public libraries, while
recognizing ALSC members for outstanding program development.

Due to COVID-19, the committee will consider proposals for virtual
programming, as well as in-person programs which can take into account
public health and safety measures

Each application will be judged on the following:

   - The plan and outline submitted for a theme-based summer reading
   program in a public library
   - Program ideas that are open to all children (birth – 14 years)
   - The committee encourages innovative proposals involving children with
   physical or mental disabilities

Applicants must be personal members of ALSC, as well as ALA members, to
apply. Deadline for submissions is Nov. 15, 2020. For more information
about the award and to find the online application, please visit the ALSC/Baker
& Taylor Summer Reading Grant website
