American Library Association - Ethnic and Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT)
01/31/20 4:00 PM CST
In-kind donations of books to USA agencies and institutions to encourage reading among children and youth. The reading books are intended to enrich the lives of children in homeless shelters, preschool programs, charter schools, underfunded libraries, and other community organizations. Eligible applicants such as libraries, schools, detention centers, social service agencies, and religious organizations must demonstrate how acquiring the collection will help them better serve the children and youth of their community.
The Coretta Scott King Book Awards Committee believes children’s lives must be saturated with books and reading opportunities. An enduring message of the Committee's Public Awareness Campaign is that books and reading can only add value to children's lives if books are present with opportunities to read. The Book Donation Grant addresses these objectives.
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.
Agencies and institutions serving children can make use of these valuable materials. Therefore, the Coretta Scott King Book Awards Committee has devised the following process for donating selected copies of the books submitted for consideration for the award to an agency with demonstrated need.
