Applications Open for FTRF Banned Books Week Celebration Grants

Each year the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF) distributes grants to support activities that raise awareness of intellectual freedom and censorship issues during the annual Banned Books Week celebration. The theme of this year’s celebration is “Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us.” Banned Books Week runs from Sept. 26-Oct. 2, 2021 and the grants of $1,000 or $2,500 are offered through the Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund.<https://www.ftrf.org/page/Krug_BBW>

Application<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf4BiGmKEEsm3kjFnOIrya6Qze5K-9Nbj2sB955k3CUtoB58w/viewform> deadline is June 4.
Create an exciting program, host a community conversation, or create an eye-catching display celebrating the freedom to read! Staff at all types of libraries, schools, universities, and non-profit community organizations are encouraged to apply. Because of COVID-19, and our understanding that not everyone is working in person, we welcome entries for virtual projects this year.
To see projects from past recipients and to apply, please visit the FTRF Grants webpage<https://www.ftrf.org/page/Krug_BBW>. The application deadline is June 4, 2021, and recipients will be announced the week of June 14, 2021.To be eligible for a grant, organizations must not have been a recipient of an FTRF grant within the past five years. Grantees are encouraged to share their events on social media and with the press. A follow-up report detailing expenditures, numbers of participants, links to press coverage and a narrative of the event is due within six weeks of the Banned Books Week celebration.
Applications are graded on use of budget, promotional plan, imagination, and schedule/action plan.  Click here<https://forms.gle/5bgeiBmR8cSzjGa38> for an application.
FTRF Founder Judith F. Krug was a fierce proponent of education and intellectual freedom.  During Krug’s lengthy career she worked non-stop to prevent censorship and protect First Amendment rights.  Librarians and intellectual freedom advocates have an opportunity to continue this work and stand up for the First Amendment by providing innovative, educational, and often fun programming to highlight Banned Books Week.
Visit the Freedom to Read Foundation<http://www.ftrf.org/?page=Krug_BBW> online to apply and learn more about past recipients and their projects.  Deadline: June 4, 2021.  Contact Joyce Hagen-McIntosh at jmcintosh at ala.org<mailto:jmcintosh at ala.org> with questions.
