- Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation Great Stories Club Pilot Program: Libraries are invited to apply for a pilot of the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Great Stories Club (GSC), a thematic reading and discussion program series that will engage underserved teens through literature-based library outreach programs and racial healing work. Applicant libraries must either be located within an organization that serves under-resourced, troubled or at-risk teens (e.g., alternative high schools, juvenile detention facilities) or work in partnership with an organization that serves that teenage population.
