Family Literacy Library Service Program funds, received from the NYS Library Division of Library Development for “Summer Reading at New York Libraries through Public Library Systems”, were used to expand MHLS member library collaboration with agencies in their community.
Mini-grants of $400 each were granted to MHLS member libraries to incentivize new collaborations with agencies in their community, for projects collaboratively-planned with their partner agency(s) that would:
- increase the number of families involved in local summer reading programs
- foster collaborations with community agencies in support of “Summer Reading at New York Libraries”
Final reports are due July 15, 2014 through the form at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/srp_mini_grant2014. The grant project period ends June 30, 2014 – funds must be fully spent by this point.
