Target Early Childhood Reading Grant
Deadline: April 30, 2013
Reading grants are awarded to schools, libraries and nonprofit organizations, supporting K-3 reading programs such as weekend book clubs and after-school reading events that foster a love of reading. Each Early Childhood Reading Grant is $2,000. Your library must be within 100 miles of a Target store* in order to apply for a Target grant. The application is available online.

Last year, several Wisconsin public libraries received grants for projects. Several organizations (like Reach Out and Read) that are attempting to get books into the hands of young children also won grants. IFLS librarians: if you want to apply but are struggling with what to apply for or how to write a winning proposal, let me know! I'd be glad to help. (langby @ ifls.lib.wi.us)
* If my calculations are correct, the only library in the IFLS system that doesn't fit this requirement is Park Falls.
