Grants

We support OUSD Libraries with book, technology and library program grants.

Book Grants

Libraries need new books to stay relevant and appealing, but Oakland Unified does not provide money for new books. 

Our Elaine Wells Books Kids Want to Read Grant helps libraries replace lost and worn books, buy books students request and buy new books from popular series.

21st Century library grants

Modern libraries are full of technology. They host clubs, author visits, and other activities. 

Our 21st Century grants fund technology for the library, book clubs, makerspace projects and collaborative activities.

To build up a library is to build up a life. A library is never just a random collection of books.
