Inspire COVID Recovery Grant - Deadline: Wednesday, September 30, 2020
Focus
Collection Development, Remote Resources
Target
School
Notes

Through a special offering of its Inspire Collection Development Grant, made possible through the generous support of Marina “Marney” Welmers, the American Association of School Librarians (AASL)  will offer grants to specifically address collection loss and remote access requirements due to COVID-19 school closures. To help meet the needs of school libraries making the fall return to learning, applications are due by 4:30 p.m. on September 30, 2020. Criteria, eligibility, and application requirements can be found at www.ala.org/aasl/awards/special.

“School librarians pivoted quickly when schools began to close due to the pandemic,” said AASL President Kathy Carroll. “Many school librarians allowed students to keep resources for the remainder of the school year and over the summer. With schools reopening, librarians are reappraising their collections as schools institute remote or hybrid learning models, highlighting the need for digital access.”

The Inspire COVID Recovery Grant allows existing public middle or high schools to recover from losses sustained due to COVID-19 school closures. Funds can be used to restore school library collections and extend online and remote resources to address learner needs. Eligible purchases include books, online subscriptions, and/or software collections, as well as accessibility extensions (hotspots, increased bandwidth, etc.).  

“This grant is a direct result of Marney recognizing the immediate needs brought on by the pandemic and that collection development goes beyond the four walls of the school library,” said Carroll. “Her generous support will allow school librarians to continue to put the needs of our learners first. Thank you, Marney--you inspire us all.”

The American Association of School Librarians, www.aasl.org, a division of the American Library Association (ALA), empowers leaders to transform teaching and learning.

Children's literacy

The mission of the Pilcrow Foundation is to provide new, quality, hardcover children’s books to rural public libraries across the United States.

The Foundation's Children’s Book Project grants support libraries located in a rural area within the 50 United States that have a limited operating budget and an active children’s department.

Through the program, a library's local sponsors can contribute from $200 to $400, which the Foundation matches on a 2-to-1 ratio. Thus, a library can receive up to $1,200 worth of new, quality, hardcover children's books.

The Foundation provides a list of over 500 quality hardcover children’s books from which Children’s Book Project grant recipients can select books best suited for their community. The book list includes award-winning and star-reviewed titles from educational and literary organizations.

The Foundation accepts applications from independent rural public libraries and Native American Tribal libraries as well as libraries that are part of a county, regional, or cooperative system. A branch library may apply if it serves a rural community. Applications are accepted from school libraries only if they also serve as the community’s public library.

The Foundation does not offer grants to libraries outside of the 50 United States, libraries in urban or metropolitan areas, or libraries with substantial operating budgets.

Note: The Foundation also offers a limited number of special non-matching grants to libraries serving rural communities in the United States affected by recent tornadoes, hurricanes, flooding, or other natural disasters. Libraries can select $800 worth of new, quality, hardcover children’s books from the Foundation’s booklist. Locally sponsored matching funds are not required for the disaster relief grants.
