NEH, ALA Announce We the People “Created Equal” Bookshelf

The We the People Bookshelf, a collection of classic books for young readers, is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ (NEH) We the People program, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office.
Each year, NEH identifies a theme important to the nation's heritage and selects books that embody that theme to build the We the People Bookshelf. The theme for the 2007-2008 Bookshelf is “Created Equal.” Public and school (K-12) libraries are invited to apply online from September 10, 2007 through January 25, 2008. A total of 3,000 libraries will be selected to receive the “Created Equal” Bookshelf. Awards will be announced on March 31, 2008.

The online application, guidelines, and other information for We the People Bookshelf, will be found by following this link .
Questions may be directed to the ALA Public Programs Office,  or  800.545.2433 x5045.
