Forwarded on behalf Kathy Marks, Better World Books California Representative

Better World Books, who will be selling the books for the author signings at the CLA conference in San Jose, is funding a $500 LEAP Literacy Grant this fall at CLA. Any library with an existing literacy program can apply to win. Simply prepare a poster meeting the requirements listed below. The winner of the most votes from CLA attendees will win $500 LEAP Literacy Grant towards the project. I’m also attaching a few photo from last year’s winning poster.
