Two Grant Opportunities for your Library
Contact: Pat Finnerty, Youth Services Librarian / Outreach Coordinator
PLS is excited to announce two funding opportunities for youth services at your library. The first is to support "1,000 Books Before Kindergarten," the national program to promote reading to newborns, infants, and toddlers and to encourage parent and child bonding through reading. The second is to encourage libraries to create Play Spaces in their building. A Play Space is an area dedicated to encouraging early learning through play.
Funding for these two grants is made possible by Bullet Aid from Senator Nozzolio and NYS outreach funds. If your library needs ideas to apply for either (or both) grants please contact me; I am happy to help.
Deadline for both grants is September 30.
Both applications are attached below.
