  Loleta D. Fyan Grant call for proposals

CHICAGO -- The American Library Association's Office for Research and 
Statistics is now accepting applications for the Loleta D. Fyan Grant. 
Fyan, ALA president in1951-1952, believed that every individual, 
regardless of residence, is equally entitled to high quality library 
service and that librarians must be adept in using the political process 
to acquire this "right of citizenship".

The grant, up to $5,000, is to be used for the development and 
improvement of public libraries and the services they provide. The 
project(s) criteria:

must result in the development and improvement of public libraries and 
the services they provide;
must have the potential for broader impact and application beyond 
meeting a specific local need;
should be designed to effect changes in public library services that are 
innovative and responsive to the future; and
should be capable of completion within one year.

Applicants can include but are not limited to: local, regional or state 
libraries, associations or organizations, including units of the ALA; 
library schools; or individuals. Deadline is Dec. 1, 2009.
