Citizens-Save-Libraries grant applications due to United for Libraries April 15

PHILADELPHIA -  Applications for the Citizens-Save-Libraries grants from United for Libraries, made possible by a grant from the Neal-Schuman Foundation, are due March 15, 2013 April 15, 2013.

The 20 grants will support advocacy at the local level for libraries with troubled budgets by sending expert advocates to library sites over the next two years. The expert advocates will help friends of the library groups, library directors and trustees develop individual blueprints for advocacy campaigns to restore, increase or save threatened library budgets.

The first 10 libraries will be selected in April 2013  (the second 10 will be selected in April 2014). Among the criteria to apply is a willingness to "pay it forward" by sharing what is learned with others in their states through presentations at local conferences, articles written for the state library association journal and a willingness to answer questions and support other advocacy campaigns via digital media and Skype.

Grant winners will receive a power guide - which will also be freely available to all library advocates on the United for Libraries website by Feb. 1- that will lay out a step-by-step blueprint for libraries to follow in generating advocacy campaigns.

To apply for the grants, visit www.ala.org/united/grants_awards/neal-schuman<http://www.ala.org/united/grants_awards/neal-schuman>.
