The American Indian Library Association and the Asian Pacific American Librarian Association are now accepting applications for the Talk Story: Sharing Stories, Sharing Culture Grant. Talk Story: Sharing Stories, Sharing Culture is a literacy program that reaches out to Asian Pacific American (APA) and American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) children and their families. The program celebrates and explores Asian Pacific American (APA) and American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) stories through books, oral traditions, and art to provide an interactive, enriching experience. Children and their families can connect to rich cultural activities through Talk Story in their homes, libraries, and communities. This grant is aimed to give financial support to libraries and community organizations who want to introduce a Talk Story program, focusing on APA or AIAN cultures.
Talk Story grant funding is available due to the generous support of the American Indian Library Association for AILA Talk Story grants and the Toyota California Community Foundation for APALA Talk Story grants.
