New ACL Mini-Grants Available to Members
Grants ($500 maximum) are available for library programs that are not part of the regular budget, including (but not limited to) author or illustrator guest speakers, professional performances for families, special hands-on programming including gaming and Makerspaces, Stay and Play resources for storytimes, special summer learning programs, and other programs that are not customarily part of the library’s budget (materials and staff salaries). If your program is chosen, funds will be disbursed in advance of the date of the program.
If grant is awarded, a brief follow-up report is due one month after the date of the event. It should include a photo, number of people who attended, and one page on what occurred at the program, what worked really well, and what you would do differently in the future. Applicants much be ACL Members!
