The Pilcrow Foundation Supports the Acquisition of Children’s Books in Rural Public Libraries.

  Grant Amount: The Foundation provides a 2-to-1 match to rural public libraries that receive a grant through its Children’s Book Project and contribute $200-$400 through local sponsors for the purchase of up to $1200 worth (at retail value) of new, quality, hardcover children’s books. A branch library may apply if it serves a rural community.


The Pilcrow Foundation announces support for rural public libraries through the Children’s Book Project. If selected, the Foundation will provide a list of over 500 quality hardcover children’s books from which Children’s Book Project grant recipients can select books best suited for their community. The book list includes award-winning and star-reviewed titles from educational and literary organizations. The purpose of the project is to enhance the selection of children’s literature in rural communities with books that are best suited for the individual community.


To qualify for the grant, libraries must be located in a rural area within the 50 United States, have a limited operating budget, have an active children’s department, and raise $200-$400 through a local sponsor. Libraries with total operating budgets of less than $50,000 will receive funding priority; however, town libraries with total operating budgets over $150,000 may also apply for grants.
