From the YALSA website:
YALSA is giving away 10 grants of $1,000 each to libraries in need to purchase digital equipment (video cameras, filming equipment, iPads, etc).
Individual library branches within a larger system are welcome to apply. This grant is designed to provide libraries in need with funds to purchase digital equipment for teens to use at the library.
The applicant must present a case for why it needs the funds, what type of equipment will be purchased, how the digital equipment will be available and used by the teens in the community, as well as how the library plans on leveraging the newly purchased equipment to engage and attract teens to the library. If awarded, funds must be used within 60 days of receiving payment.
If selected to receive the grant, the grant recipient must create a Teens' Top Ten related project. Some examples of said project include: teens creating a book trailer, teens campaigning for their favorite titles, sharing their “top ten,” etc.
Applications are due May 15.
Recipients will be announced the week of June 17.
