Hayes, Baker & Taylor Awards Submission Deadline November 30

Hayes, Baker & Taylor Awards Submission Deadline November 30
Tuesday, November 19, 2013

The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Grants Administration Committee are currently accepting online applications for the 2014 Maureen Hayes Author/Illustrator Award and the 2014 Baker & Taylor Summer Reading Grant. The deadline for both of these awards is Saturday, November 30, 2013.

The Maureen Hayes Author/Illustrator Award is made possible by an annual gift from Simon & Schuster. This $4,000 award, named in honor of Maureen Hayes, brings together children and nationally recognized authors/illustrators by funding an author/illustrator visit to a library. Applicants must be personal members of ALSC, as well as ALA members to apply.

The ALSC/Baker & Taylor Summer Reading Grant is made possible by the generosity of Baker & Taylor. This $3,000 grant is designed to encourage reading programs for children in public libraries, while recognizing ALSC members for outstanding program development. Applicants must be personal members of ALSC, as well as American Library Association members to apply.

Every year, more than $100,000 is given away through ALSC's professional awards, grants, and scholarships. For more information on these and other ALSC professional awards, please visit the Professional Awards & Grants section of the ALSC website.
