Round-Up: November 8, 2013


Congratulations to the 12 GLR communities that recently received grants from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS): Philadelphia, PA; Boston, MA; Bronx, NY; Baltimore, MD; Columbia, SC; Hartford, CT; Chicago, IL; Brooklyn, NY; Providence, RI; Madison, WI; Houston, TX; and Denver, CO. This year, IMLS awarded $4.3 million in grants to 20 museums and libraries in 17 communities for work that promotes learning from birth to third grade. This marks the second year of the Campaign’s partnership with IMLS, which last year provided $2.5 million in awards. This year’s projects range from creating comic books with kids in Brooklyn to training new librarians in Denver about early learning. We’re very proud of all of the GLR communities honored with this grant!
