Libraries Ready to Code Grant Application is Open
Libraries Ready to Code is accepting grant applications through August 31 from public and school libraries interested in developing youth programming that promotes computer science and computation thinking.
The Libraries Ready to Code program is an initiative of the American Library Association and is sponsored by Google. Award levels can vary, so anywhere from 25 to 50 libraries will receive funding of up to $25,000 to cover design and implementation costs.
The toolkit, set to release in conjunction with National Library Week in April 2018, will consist of computer science resources that libraries find most useful for designing and implementing youth computer science programming. This cohort of libraries will also initiate a community of practice to sustain momentum and build expertise across thousands of school and public U.S. libraries.
Hurry! Applications are accepted until August 31. You can find the application at ala.org/tools/readytocode.
