Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

After-school grant opportunity

I attended a rousing and inspiring session at the WLA Conference about collaborating effectively with schools.  I know this is an area that many of you are looking for help with, and you can look for a webinar and some other initiatives coming up in 2013.  In the meantime, I want to make sure you know about a grant opportunity, which I found in DPI-Connect-Ed.  This would be a great chance to work with schools and other agencies in you community to come up with something fabulous for after school!  See below for details, and if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know!

The DPI is accepting applications for 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) grants. The 21st CCLC program supports high-quality academic support, recreation, youth development, and family programs during after school hours and summers.
Applicants must primarily serve students attending schools with 40 percent or more of enrolled students eligible for free or reduced lunch or equivalent economic need.
Public school districts, private schools, charter schools, and community-based organizations may apply, either individually or in a consortium including two or more.
Awards are made for five consecutive years, contingent upon satisfactory progress toward goals.
Applications will be available starting in November and are due on or before February 1, 2013.
The DPI is offering three grant workshops to help with the application process:
November 19: 90-minute Web-based workshop
November 20: Oconomowoc, WI - Olympia Resort and Conference Center
November 21: Rothschild, WI - Holiday Inn
Visit http://www.dpi.wi.gov/sspw/dpiclctrng.html for more information regarding the workshops.
Please contact Gary Sumnicht, 608-267-5078, or Alison Wineberg, 608-267-3751, with questions about the program and competition, and for assistance with
