The Lois Lenski Covey Foundation, Inc. annually awards grants for
purchasing books published for young people preschool through grade 12.
Grants for 2009 will range from $500 to $3000 and are specifically for
children’s book purchases rather than administrative or operational
The LLCF library grant program provides grants for public libraries,
school libraries, and charitable organizations [501(c)(3)] that have
lending libraries where children up to age 18 may check out books to
read or to use for gathering information. We will also consider
applications from non-profit abuse centers, rehab centers, detention
centers, etc., as long as a lending library is actively maintained on
the premises. Only libraries or organizations within the United States,
its territories, or commonwealths are eligible. 
The Foundation gives to libraries or organizations that serve
economically or socially at-risk children, have limited book budgets,
and demonstrate real need. 
The library grant program provides grants for purchasing children’s
books. The books may be fiction or non-fiction. 
The library grant program DOES NOT provide grants for book-donation
programs, classroom libraries, atlases, dictionaries, basal readers or
similar texts, workbooks or similar instructional tools, or for
textbooks or encyclopedias. 
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. 
In order for a library to be considered, it must have been in operation
for at least three years. County or district library systems cannot
apply as a whole; public or school libraries within a county or district
system are eligible to apply individually.
