Underserved Children: Welcoming Libraries Grant
FY21 Grant Application – open October 1, 2020 – October 30, 2020
Grant Implementation Timeline: December 1, 2020 – March 31, 2021
The Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICfL) embraces the idea that libraries should be welcoming and engaging spaces for all people. Some children who visit our library (or don’t visit our library) are going underserved or unserved because they do not feel welcome or included in some of our libraries/spaces or they do not find themselves and their experiences reflected in their library.
Applying libraries will utilize Underserved Children: Welcoming Libraries Grants to ensure that every individual feels truly welcomed and included at the library. Welcoming Libraries Grants will focus on activities which improve equity, diversity and inclusion in Idaho libraries and better serve the community’s underserved groups of children.
