Dollar General Summer Reading Grants

This grant encourages outstanding summer reading programs by providing financial assistance, while recognizing YALSA members for outstanding program development. The applicant must plan and present an outline for a teen-focused summer reading program administered through a library. The program must be open to all teens (12-18 years). YALSA encourages innovative proposals that are inclusive of underserved teen populations, including but not limited to teens with disabilities and teens who speak English as a second language.

The $1,000 grant, made possible by Dollar General, is to be used to support the program. A total of twenty grants are available. Individual library branches within a larger system are welcome to apply.
