The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is collaborating with the
Association to inaugurate the We the People Bookshelf, a program to
encourage young people to read and understand great literature while
exploring themes in American history.
School and public libraries are invited to apply to NEH to receive the We
the People Bookshelf, which consists of fifteen thematically related books
and supplemental materials to help with publicity and the organization of
public programs. Each year the Bookshelf will explore a different theme.
For 2003-2004, the theme is "courage."
NEH will accept applications online from now until October 22, 2003, 5 pm
local time AND from December 15, 2003 to February 15, 2004, 5 pm local time.
Further information and application guidelines may be found on the We the
People website at
