Through the generosity of the American National Bank, The Guilford County Enrichment Fund provides grants of up to $100 to first and second grade teachers who would like to create, or add to, a classroom lending library.
Individual grants are limited to a maximum of $100 and must be used to purchase take-home books for students reading below grade level.
While reading corners, media centers and school libraries are essential, please do not submit projects that seek to supply these areas.
No group applications will be considered.
Applicants will be notified of the status of their application by November 30.
The application must be completed by the classroom teacher.
Evidence of a check-out system must be included in the application.
An itemized purchase order must be attached.
All receipts and a brief narrative evaluation must be submitted to the Enrichment Fund by May 1.
Any questions about the Lending Library Grants should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
