We have the capacity to serve 100 Idaho libraries. Public and school libraries may register for this program. School libraries are encouraged to partner with an applying public library and submit one registration form for a joint event. If the local public library cannot partner, the school library may apply on their own. We want to serve as many children/families as possible so we encourage community collaboration and discourage duplicate requests.
Program Registration: approx. September 15th – October 15th (based on a first-come, first served protocol)
Libraries who register will receive: Access to the marketing collateral and activity templates developed by ICfL for this year’s theme, 5 hardcover books for your library, paperback books to give to participating families (limits will apply).
Libraries who are unable to register before we reach our maximum capacity of 100 libraries: You can still offer the program with the help of our free, downloadable marketing collateral and activity templates. You may also consider if your event meets the requirements of the “Outreach for Underserved Children” program, found here.
Oct 1 – Oct 15: Requested books and resources mailed out to participating libraries. Libraries who do not register before we hit capacity can use all program art, activity templates and other resources listed on the FRW website.
