Library of Congress State Literacy Award California

The Library of Congress State Literacy Award program, administered by the Library of Congress Center for Learning, Literacy and Engagement, recognizes organizations or programs that have made outstanding and innovative contributions to promoting literacy and/or reading in the local community or state.  State affiliates of the Library of Congress Center for the Book are invited to select one nominee from their state to compete for one of up to 10 awards. These awards are made possible through the generous support of David M. Rubenstein.

In California, organizations are nominated by the California Center for the Book Program Development Group. Organizations nominated may serve a county, region, or statewide community. Organizations cannot operate on a for-profit basis. The amount of the award is $2,000. The award will be delivered at the Awards Gala during the California Library Association Annual Conference.
