Family Literacy Library Services Grant Program
|The Family Literacy Library Services Program helps library systems and libraries provide family literacy services to children and their parents or caregivers. The program theme is "Summer Reading at New York Libraries through Public Library Systems." Participating public library systems work to increase the number of children and families involved in local library summer reading programs. Projects that include partnerships with community organizations are encouraged. In previous years successful partnerships have been established with schools, preschools, weekend and summer learning programs, museums, public television, historical societies, environmental centers and cultural organizations.
Family Literacy Library Services Grant Program applications are submitted through the web-based application program.
