The American Library Association's Office for Research and Statistics is now accepting applications for the Loleta D. Fyan Grant, a grant for up to $5,000 for the improvement of public libraries and the services they provide. Loleta D. Fyan, ALA President 1951-1952, believed that every individual, regardless of residence, is equally entitled to high quality library service and that librarians must be adept in using the political process to acquire this "right of citizenship."

The grant, up to $5,000, is to be used for the development and improvement of public libraries and the services they provide. The project should:
*       result in the development and improvement of public libraries and the services they provide;
*       have the potential for broader impact and application beyond meeting a specific local need;
*       be designed to effect changes in public library services that are innovative and responsive to the future; and
*       be capable of completion within one year.
Applicants can include but are not limited to: local, regional or state libraries, associations or organizations, including units of the ALA; library schools; or individuals. Deadline for submissions, sent via email, is January 12, 2018.

You can find more information about the grant, how to submit proposals, and requirements of the recipient(s) here<http://www.ala.org/offices/ors/orsawards/fyanloletad/fyanloletad>.
