Apply to Win Collection of Books, DVDs

By Teachers.Net News Desk
 

LITERACY REWARD PROGRAM NOTICE

The Nat’l Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association is awarding a special collection of books and DVDs as part of its “We the People Bookshelf “project, to as many as 4,000 libraries.

ELIGIBILITY: All public and school libraries;

FUNDING LEVELS: 4,000 libraries will receive a collection of hardcover books and DVDs.

DEADLINE: Jan. 29, 2010

PURPOSE: The program is designed to encourage young people to read and understand great literature while exploring themes in American history.

This year’s theme, “A More Perfect Union,” invites reflection on the idea of the United States as a union and will complement library programs observing the sesquicentennial of the Civil War.

To stimulate programming, the bookshelf features a DVD edition of The Civil War, the renown documentary by Ken Burns, including the rights to show the series to public audiences. In April, NEH and ALA will select the libraries to receive 17 books for young readers, bonus materials for readers of all ages, and the option to receive three titles in Spanish translation. Libraries selected will be required to use the bookshelf selections in programs for young readers in their communities.

INSIDER’S TIP: Program officials prefer online submissions, but will make alternate arrangements for those who can’t submit that way. The grant guidance provides a wealth of information and assistance to submit the applications, including FAQ and sample narrative sections.
