Please pardon a potential 2nd email on this topic.

Hi, Directors of Oregon Rural Public Libraries,

The Pilcrow Foundation is taking over what the Libri Foundation used to do with the Books for Children grant program. We in Library Support and Development were asked by Karren Timmermans, Executive Director at the Pilcrow Foundation, to let you know about their 2016 Children's Book Project matching grant opportunities. Please refer to the email below and to this page, http://thepilcrowfoundation.org/childrens-book-project/, which has information about eligibility and requirements.

Many of you probably know that the Libri Foundation is offering its final grants in 2016, but only specific Oregon libraries qualify: http://www.librifoundation.org/apps.html. I asked Karren how possibly receiving a 2016 grant from the Libri Foundation might affect eligibility for the 2016 Pilcrow Foundation grants. In response, she wrote, "Librarians, whether or not they have received a grant from Libri in the past 3 years or in 2016, are eligible to apply for grant from The Pilcrow Foundation. Although we are continuing Libri's work, we are operating independently of them."
If have any questions, please contact Karren at pilcrowfoundation at gmail.com<mailto:pilcrowfoundation at gmail.com>.

Subject: Pilcrow Foundation rural public library grants


I hope this email finds you well. I am the executive director of The Pilcrow Foundation. We recently took over the work of the Libri Foundation to provide new, quality, hardcover books to rural public libraries. We have a Named Sponsor who would like to support rural public libraries in Oregon. It would be most helpful if you could let the Oregon public librarians at the rural libraries know of this opportunity.

Our grant due dates are 1 March, 1 May, and 1 October. We provide a 2 to 1 match for libraries raising from $200-$400 in their communities. Information and grant applications are available on our website

Many thanks and please let me know if you have any questions.
