Hello Oregon libraries,

Wanted to let you know that the Libraries Ready to Code has opened a mini-grant opportunity  for school, tribal, public, and academic libraries that may be helpful if you just need some quick programming funds:

Libraries Ready to Code Opens Call for Applications:  Mini-Grants for Digital Skills Programs

In advance of Digital Learning Day<https://digitallearningday.org/>, ALA is opening a call for applications for $700 mini-grants to school, tribal, public, and academic libraries to design and implement programs using Google's Applied Digital Skills<http://g.co/AppliedDigitalSkills/ALA> resources. Applications are due February 14, and up to 290 eligible libraries will be selected to deliver at least 4 sessions throughout the programming they develop (e.g., drop in, multiple sessions, a spring break camp, or weekend workshop) that prepares learners of all ages to use technology tools.

Digital Learning Day, to be held February 27, 2020, is an annual event that promotes the effective use of technology tools to enhance learning experiences for youth. Since 2012, Digital Learning Day has served as a platform for showcasing innovative and impactful approaches to incorporating technology to enhance learning and opportunity for all.

How do I apply for the $700 Digital Skills mini-grant?

Visit the Libraries Ready to Code website<http://www.ala.org/tools/readytocode> for more information. Applications will be accepted until February 14. Up to 290 eligible libraries will be awarded mini-grants. Recipients will implement at least 4 sessions in multi-day or multiple sessions between Digital Learning Day and May 31. The mini-grants will be disbursed after selected libraries successfully submit a brief report on their activities to confirm they were conducted. Funds may be used for resources necessary for the participating library to enhance or expand its digital skills programming. General operating or overhead expenses and other indirect costs are not funded through this grant (e.g., utilities, equipment depreciation, etc.).
