Deadline Approaching: ALA Loleta D. Fyan Grant

If there is one thing that our stewardship of the Evy Nordley Award for Best Project by Friends of the Library has taught us, it is that Friends do not lack for creative, actionable ideas about how to help their libraries. The problem, of course, is funding those ideas.

If this describes you, ALA encourages you to check out its Loleta D. Fyan Grant. Applicants are invited to make a case for grants of up to $5,000.

Strong candidate projects:

  • must result in the development and improvement of public libraries and the services they provide,
  • must have the potential for broader impact and application beyond meeting a specific local need;
  • should be designed to effect changes in public library services that are innovative and responsive to the future; and
  • should be capable of completion within one year
