ALA (Chicago, IL 60611-2729)
Deborah Robertson (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Support for Library Humanities Programming in the Covid Era

Retention of nine staff members of the American Library Association’s Public Programming Office.

The American Library Association’s (ALA) Public Programs Office (PPO) requests $300,000 in NEH CARES relief funding to support continued efforts in four key areas for work: professional development and peer-sharing; development of future humanities projects; professional recognition; and measurement and evaluation. ALA PPO’s nine-person staff collaborates with librarians, humanities scholars, artists and documentarians, scientists and financial literacy experts, museums, and others to create and scale nationwide programming opportunities, grants, and traveling exhibitions for U.S. libraries, and to offer professional development, recognition, and research that supports the vital work of programming librarians. NEH CARES support will help ALA continue serving libraries and librarians, sustaining and growing their efforts to provide humanities programming and content during this critical time and on the other side of the COVID-19 crisis.
