New Hampshire State Library (NHSL), Children’s Librarians Section of the New Hampshire Library Association
Grants to New Hampshire public libraries to host special events that engage local children and families in reading and literacy. Funding is intended for libraries to host a qualified presenter to provide a workshop or performance to promote literacy during the summer.
The objectives of the project are to 1) help promote the participation of children and their families in the NH Summer Reading Program, 2) encourage arts programming in communities that have offered limited or no arts programs, 3) introduce library audiences to a variety of art forms, and 4) strengthen the partnership between the arts community and public libraries.
This grant helps to fund a performance, or a performance and a workshop or--in some cases--just a workshop, offered by a presenter on the 2019 Kids, Books and the Arts Roster. However, the program must be a part of the library’s summer reading program and the library must be using the 2019 CSLP summer reading theme of “A Universe of Stories.”
Programs may be used as the kick-off event for the summer reading program, during the course of the summer reading program, or as a culminating event.
All programs must be accessible to persons with disabilities, and sign language interpretation and other accommodations must be made if requested by a community member.
GrantWatch ID#: 179335
All programs must be completed by August 31, 2019.
