The ICfL has funding to support library-led, community-based efforts to help get preschoolers ready for kindergarten.
Public libraries can apply for up to $10,000, in increments of $2500, to support programs and partnerships that meet the following goals:
- Ensure that more Idaho four-year-olds and their families have public library cards to gain access to the tools and resources needed to help children succeed in school;
- Increase the amount of early literacy activities done in the homes of four-year-olds; and
- Increase the number of successful public library, school, and community partnerships aimed at third-grade reading proficiency.
