Grant Funding for ALA & Google’s “Libraries Ready to Code” Program

ALA has recently “announced a competitive grant program, sponsored by Google, that will fund a cohort of 25-50 school and public libraries to develop resources to help get U.S. libraries “Ready to Code.” The $500,000 pilot program is part of Phase III of Libraries Ready to Code, an ongoing collaboration between ALA and Google to ensure expert library professionals are prepared to develop and deliver programming that promotes computer science (CS) and computational thinking (CT) among youth, two skills that will be required for challenges and jobs of the future.”  Click HERE to read more.  Applications will be open mid-July through August 2017.
