Free people read freely! Would you like to create an exciting program, host a community conversation, or create an eye-catching display celebrating the freedom to read? Applications are open for libraries and organizations to receive a grant from the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF) to host a program during Banned Books Week, Sept. 23-29, 2018. Grants of $1,000 or $2,500 are offered through the Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund. To see projects from past recipients and to apply, please visit the FTRF Grants webpage.
