Applications sought for 2017 Coretta Scott King Book Donation Grants



CHICAGO — Underfunded libraries, schools and non-traditional organizations
that provide educational services to children are invited to apply to
receive one of three Coretta Scott King Book Donation Grants.



Awarded by the Coretta Scott King Book Awards Committee, the grant program
provides books submitted for consideration for the Coretta Scott King Book
Awards to libraries and other organizations to expand their collections.
Each year, three organizations that demonstrate need and potential benefit
from receiving the collection are selected. All three libraries will
receive copies of more than 40 titles submitted for consideration for the
2017 awards, including a full set of the 2017 winner and honor titles.



Applications will be accepted through Feb. 21, 2017, and winners will be
announced by mid-April.



For more information, and to apply, please visit www.ala.org/csk  and click

The Coretta Scott King Book Awards are presented annually by the Coretta
Scott King Book Awards Committee of the ALA’s Ethnic and Multicultural
Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT) to encourage the artistic
expression of the African-American experience via literature and the
graphic arts.
