Snapdragon Book Foundation Offers School Library Support

Snapdragon_Book_Foundation_1.5x2..375.jpgSchool libraries in many parts of the country routinely face budget shortfalls and cuts. Unfortunately, this is especially true in poorer communities – in the schools where children could most benefit from a robust library and media center.

If your school media center serves a high proportion of disadvantaged students, the Snapdragon Book Foundation wants to help. For the past seven years, this organization (started by a former librarian, who understands the challenges faced by these important facilities), has been providing much needed monetary assistance to school libraries looking to expand their lending collections. If your media center is looking to purchase materials within the next nine months, visit their website to see if you are eligible.

Last year, the Snapdragon Book Foundation received 550 applications – and awarded a number of grants ranging from $1,500 to $15,000. Apply by Friday, April 15 to be considered for the 2016 cycle.
