California Reads Grant
The window to apply for this grant is now CLOSED. The application deadline was Monday, October 31, 2011.
California Reads is a grant and resource program to spark statewide engagement in conversations about topics of importance to Californians. To do this, Cal Humanities is supporting libraries jurisdictions throughout the state to create thematically-focused, community-wide reading and discussion activities based on a slate of books. Conducted in close partnership with the California Center for the Book, California Reads is currently linked to our Searching for Democracy initiative, which is exploring the meaning of democracy today.
Over $400,000 has been awarded to 53 library systems to participate in this round of programming throughout 2012. Although the application window for the current grant round has closed, plenty of program resources are available for you to join in the conversation—including the book list, discussion and curriculum guides, and videos with authors.
