iREAD 2023: Find Your Voice
We are thrilled to announce the theme for iREAD 2023: Find Your Voice! Our voices have power. We use our voices to share stories, express ourselves, and spark change. Our voices include not only the sounds we make, but the words we write, the art we create, the movements we perform, and the actions we take each day to impact our world. iREAD 2023: Find Your Voice will provide a context for exploring books, history, social justice, and STEAM fields as well as develop library programs and services that empower patrons of all ages to make their voices heard.


NSLA Launches a New Summer Innovation Fellowship
[https://mcusercontent.com/6e70654dccbd86e15c572ad55/images/2c5e7eea-e02f-49af-9e84-34273e5d3581.png]NSLA believes summer learning programs provide a unique and flexible opportunity for leaders to try out and measure the effectiveness of new ideas and strategies, creative partnerships, and policies before scaling.

The severity and enormity of the societal challenges we face in America require entrepreneurial leaders to pursue innovative solutions. NSLA is launching a new Summer Innovation Fellowship for leaders of color, which will offer:

  *   $25,000 towards implementing an in-person, virtual, or hybrid summer learning program;
  *   A personal NSLA Coach to work with the fellow and a team with planning;
  *   Access to NSLA tools, resources, and convenings to support their work;
  *   Mentoring opportunities with experienced role models and leaders in the field; and
  *   Free registration to NSLA’s annual “Summer Changes Everything” national conference.
We aim to support emerging leaders of color who are:

  *   Looking to launch, modify or expand a new program serving low-income students;
  *   Model and promote unique and innovative practices, partnerships, or policies;
  *   Address an unmet need and offer students some combination of academic, enrichment, and physical and social-emotional supports.
  *   Interested in measuring their success and joining the NSLA Community.
Applicants should be sponsored by or apply in conjunction with a fiscal sponsor such as a school district, nonprofit, or government agency.
