Are you applying or thinking of apply for the Oregon Department of Education's early literacy grant<http://listsmart.osl.state.or.us/pipermail/kids-lib/2013-November/001580.html> next month? Are you applying or thinking of applying for another early literacy grant?  Here are a few resources to help you:

Attached is a list of some research/evidence based early literacy programs in Oregon with names and contact information of library staff willing to talk with you a little about how each program works or worked for them to help you plan your grant funded early literacy project.

Most strong grant applications include statistics and references to research. Here are some places to get those:

*         Reading for Healthy Families: Read the Research<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/rfhf.special.topics.aspx>

*         This email I sent on kids-lib<http://listsmart.osl.state.or.us/pipermail/kids-lib/2013-June/001427.html> in June about good sources for statistics.

Below are three more books that may be helpful in identifying and building community partnerships to implement your grant funded early literacy project, getting more ideas for early literacy projects, and actually writing the grant application. The following titles are available to check out.  Here is what you can do to check them out:

*               Go to your library's website and look up the titles in the online catalog.

*               If your library has these titles, put them on hold/check them out as you would any other library item.

*               If your library does not have the following titles, call either your personal contact at the library or call the main library number and ask for the reference desk.

*               Provide the full title information listed below and tell them you would like to check them out via interlibrary loan.  The librarian will be able to help you through that process.
