That All May Read Grant
The Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICfL) is pleased to announce that public libraries throughout Idaho may apply for the That All May Read Grant. This $1,000 grant is designed to assist libraries in building large-print collections, obtaining assistive technology, and/or providing outreach to people who are unable to read standard print or have difficulty holding a book due to a visual impairment, blindness, or other perceptual or physical disability. This grant helps libraries to build the capacity to better serve their communities. It also improves equitable access for Idahoans to information and reading materials in alternate formats.
This grant is being carried out in conjunction with the Idaho Talking Book Service (TBS), a free audiobook library service managed by the ICfL. There are more than 100,000 fiction and nonfiction titles in the TBS collection. The service is available to any Idaho resident who is blind, has a perceptual or reading disability, or is unable to read standard print. As part of the grant, libraries will be required to promote the TBS in order to increase awareness of the program throughout the state.
Submit Applications: January 15 – February 1, 2023
Grant Period: February 26 – September 15, 2023
