Notes: 
ALA's Association for Library Services to Children's annual Bookapalooza Program selects three libraries to receive a collection of materials to help transform their collection, provide the opportunity for these materials to be used in their community in creative and innovative ways, and enhance their library service to children and families. Applicants must be personal members of ALSC as well as ALA.

Each year the ALSC office receives almost 3,000 newly published books, videos, audio books, and recordings from children’s trade publishers. The materials are primarily for children age birth through fourteen and are submitted to ALSC award and media evaluation selection committees for award and notables consideration. The Bookapalooza Program was created to find new homes for these materials. 

 
More details and a link to the short online application are available on the ALSC's website.
