The Bookish: Readers Are Leaders Grant

The Bookish: Readers Are Leaders Grant seeks teachers who demonstrate a passion for promoting the joy of reading. Teachers awarded the grant will be able to purchase a curated selection of books to add to their classroom library.  These teachers recognize the diversity of every class of readers and they challenge each student to build an independent reading life of increasing depth. Teachers who apply for a grant must demonstrate that they are already committed to the support of readers through current classroom practices and curate a book collection that represents our changing world.
