YALSA is distributing twenty $1,000 summer reading resources grants to help libraries boost their collections by providing funds to purchase reading materials, especially those that help English Language Learners and struggling readers. YALSA will provide 20 libraries with $1,000 each to recruit, train and compensate teen assistants to help with summer reading programs. Individual library branches within a larger system may apply. Applications are due January 1, 2014. Funding is provided by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Learn more or apply at http://summerreading.ning.com/.
