The Lois Lenski Covey Foundation School Library Grant Program
Lois Lenski, author of children's book, "Strawberry Girl," had a life-long concern that all children have access to good books. So, she established this foundation to provide grants to agencies serving disadvantaged populations.
Public libraries, Prek-8th grade school libraries and non-traditional libraries operated by 501(c)(3) agencies are eligible to apply. The foundation provides grants to libraries or organizations that serve economically or socially at-risk children, have limited book budgets, and demonstrate real need.
Grants for 2012 will range from $500-$3000 and are specifically for book purchases and not for administrative or operational uses.
Grants will be awarded on or before December 15th, 2012.
