About The Coretta Scott King Book Donation Grant
"Every year, in the process of choosing the Coretta Scott King Book Award winners and honor books, the Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT) of the American Library Association receives multiple copies of approximately 60-100 titles by African American authors and illustrators, including a full set of the year's winning and honor titles." (ALA website, 2015)
This grant gives school, public and special libraries the ability to recieve a set of that year's Coretta Scott King Book Award Winning titles, approximately 60-100 books. There is no catch. There is no special reporting required other than a thank you to the CSK committee, photos, and posting information about the grant award in your school/district community. Compared to other grants, this one is truly a donation that simply would like a thank you.
There is one caveat to this award, however. You must, as the recipient of this grant, pay for the shipping of the materials yourself. You must also process the books to add them into your collection. However, in my opinion, that is a small price for this lovely special collection.
This award was awarded to the Andrew J. Townsend School #39 in March, 2015. The GRANT IS DUE AT THE END OF JANUARY (after the winners are announced) each year.
