To launch the yearlong celebration of Día turning 20, the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) has awarded ten Building STEAM with Día mini-grants to help libraries implement a Building STEAM with Día program in their community. The project year for this grant is January 2016 through May 2016. This mini-grant opportunity is funded by the Dollar General Literacy Foundation through the Everyone Reads @ your library grant awarded to ALSC.
Grantees must implement one or more Building STEAM with Día program for their community that focus on culturally diverse and appropriate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs.
The 2016 Building STEAM with Día mini-grants have been awarded to the following libraries:
Beaumont Library District (CA), Clifton Public Library (NJ), Dallas Public Library (TX), Dayton Metro Library (OH), Glen Ellyn Public Library (IL), Keene Public Library (NH), Muskego Public Library (WI), North Shelby Library (AL), Providence Community Library (RI) and Riverside County Library (CA).
