In a time when many schools are reallocating their funds to technology and audiovisual equipment, the Snapdragon Book Foundation wants to make sure that school libraries are still offering children good books to read, especially those in disadvantaged communities. The foundation will award grants to public, private, and experimental schools, and school libraries serving disadvantaged children in prekindergarten through grade 12. Funds from the foundation may be used for books that will be used repeatedly by school-aged children through classroom libraries, a central library, or similar venues); processing or cataloging fees from book vendors; reference materials for use by students; and magazine or newspaper subscriptions. Grants typically range from $2,500 to $10,000. If Snapdragon is unable to fulfill an applicant’s full request, the foundation may offer a partial grant.
Deadline: February 14, 2021, for applications
