THE LLCF LIBRARY GRANT PROGRAM

Type: Foundations
Source: Lois Lenski Covey Foundation
Program: THE LLCF LIBRARY GRANT PROGRAM
Eligibility: IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR 2013 -- Starting this year the Foundation will not consider applications from public libraries, except for the funding of bookmobile programs. This restriction also applies to charitable organizations supporting public libraries ("Friends of the Library" organizations). The LLCF library grant program provides grants to libraries for the purchase of books for children preschool through grade 8 [Early Reader books through Young Adult and Hi-Lo books]. We will consider applications for school libraries and for bookmobile programs, as well as for non-traditional libraries. Non-traditional libraries are those within or operated by charitable organizations [501(c)(3)] or other non-taxable entities that have lending libraries where young people may check out books to read or to use for gathering information. Examples of such organizations include youth or family resource centers, detention centers, organizations serving young people with mental or physical health challenges, etc. In this latter category the Foundation will consider purchasing books to be used by young people preschool through grade 12, but as with other libraries only Early Reader through Young Adult and Hi-Lo books may be purchased. Only libraries or organizations within the United States, its territories, or commonwealths are eligible. The library grant program provides grants for purchasing children’s fiction or non-fiction books. The library grant program DOES NOT provide grants for book distribution programs, classroom collections, atlases, dictionaries, basal readers or similar texts, workbooks or similar instructional tools, or for textbooks or encyclopedias. We do not provide funds for ebook purchases. Grant applications for audio books will be considered only in the cases of children with special needs, where audio books would be particularly appropriate in addressing those needs. At this time, the Foundation is not considering funding for the purchase of e-books or e-readers. In order for a library to be considered, it must have been in operation for at least three years. District or county library systems cannot apply as a whole; school libraries within a district or county system must apply individually. Grant awardees will be asked to return a brief questionnaire and to provide documentation of grant spending.
