Dollar General School Library Relief Program to Assist
School Libraries Affected by Disasters

Deadline: Open

Reaching out to communities recovering from major disasters, Dollar General ( http://www.dollargeneral.com/ ) has announced the creation of "Beyond Words: The Dollar General School Library Relief Program," a grant program to benefit public school libraries in affected areas.

Initially, Dollar General is donating $800,000 to fund the program, which will be administered by the American Association of School Librarians ( http://www.ala.org/aasl/ ), a division of the American Library Association ( http://www.ala.org ). The National Education Association ( http://www.nea.org ) will work with AASL to review grant proposals and provide support materials to libraries.

The fund will provide grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 each for books, media, and/or equipment that support learning in a school library environment. First priority for the initial grants will be given to school libraries impacted by hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma -- either through direct loss or through an increase in enrollment due to displaced students.

Applications are reviewed monthly.

For complete eligibility requirements and application guidelines, visit the AASL Web site.
