Cultural programming, discussion series and traveling exhibitions are some of the best ways to engage with your library community. Information on current exhibition tours and recently closed applications is listed below.


  • Applications are now being accepted for the Great Stories Club. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Great Stories Club will introduce more than 8,000 young adults to accessible and thought-provoking literature selected by humanities scholars to resonate with reluctant readers struggling with complex issues like incarceration, violence and poverty. Programming grants will be available to libraries of all types that are located within or working in partnership with organizations that serve at-risk young adults, including alternative high schools, juvenile justice organizations, homeless shelters and foster care agencies, teen parenting programs, residential treatment facilities and other nonprofit and community agencies. 
  • Applications are now being accepted for Explore Earth, Explore Tech and Explore Space. Public libraries are invited to apply to host one of these three interactive, 200-square foot STEM traveling exhibitions. The opportunity is offered by the American Library Association Public Programs Office in collaboration with the Space Science Institute's National Center for Interactive Learning, the Lunar and Planetary Institute and the Afterschool Alliance.
