February 3, 2009 is deadline to apply for THE BIG READ grant

From the National Endowment for the Arts THE BIG READ website:

"The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts designed to restore reading to the center of American culture. The NEA presents The Big Read in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and in cooperation with Arts Midwest. The Big Read brings together partners across the country to encourage reading for pleasure and enlightenment. Approximately 400 organizations in communities of varying sizes across the country will be selected to participate in The Big Read from September 2009 through June 2010."

An overview of THE BIG READ featured in the November 15, 2008 issue of Library Journal:
