Association for Library Service to Children Offers Under Served Populations Outreach Grant

Deadline: December 3, 2007

The Association for Library Service to Children ( http://www.ala.org/alsc ), a division of the American Library Association ( http://www.ala.org/ ), and Candlewick Press ( http://www.candlewick.com/ ) have announced "Light the Way: Outreach to the Under served," a one-time grant of $5,000 for a library conducting exemplary outreach to under served populations.

The ALSC Library Service to Special Population Children and Their Caregivers Committee will select the winner and may name up to three Honorable Mentions.

Special population children may include those who have learning or physical differences, speak English as a second language, are in a non-traditional school environment or a non-traditional family setting (such as teen parents, foster children, children in the juvenile justice system, and children in gay and lesbian families), and those who need accommodation service to meet their needs.

Criteria and an application for the grant are available at the ALSC Web site.
