Family Literacy Library Services Grant Program

The Family Literacy Library Services Program helps libraries provide family literacy services to children and their parents or caregivers. Priority is given to projects that include partnerships between libraries or library systems and community organizations. In previous years successful partnerships have been established with schools, preschools, weekend and summer learning programs, museums, public television, historical societies, environmental centers, agencies and cultural organizations.

Family Literacy Library Services Grant Program applications are no longer issued in paper. For the next grant cycle, all applications must be submitted through the web-based application program.
