Hello! I just received the following email about an opportunity to apply for an award of $5,000. Apply if you know of a school, public, academic, or special library that has recently implemented a program "that features the humanities, sciences, arts, creative arts, community and civic engagement programs [or] in conjunction with exhibitions, community-wide reading programs, or other community-wide programs.   The program should have engaged the community in planning, sponsorship and/or active participation, addressed an identified community need, and have had a measurable impact." The application deadline is December 1, 2012.
