Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants and in-kind support to New Hampshire and Vermont rural public libraries to develop children's library programs. Libraries will receive book donations, book and storytelling presentations, an author or illustrator visit, and a grant to support library programming. Funding is intended to help libraries increase circulation, create excitement about reading, and strengthen their relationships with the local communities they serve.

Ideal candidates will use the grant to think energetically, resourcefully, and creatively about getting books to children by collaborating with the local elementary school, childcare centers, and community members, encouraging family participation in the public library, and promoting the new collection of books.
