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.

Great Stories Club: Reading and Discussion for At-Risk Youth

Implementation of a nationwide series of humanities-focused reading and discussion programs for at-risk youth dealing with themes of empathy, heroism, and marginalization.

The GSC is a thematic reading and discussion program developed to reach at-risk youth through literature-based library outreach programs. Featuring three new themed series developed with a planning grant from NEH, the GSC will introduce teens and others facing difficult circumstances to accessible and appealing books selected by literature scholars with a special interest in reaching the underserved; facilitate in-depth exploration of humanities themes that will resonate with reluctant readers who struggle with complex issues like incarceration, violence, poverty, and addiction; and connect participants to a highly successful national program model launched by ALA in 2006. Participants will explore themes that address interpretations and implications of empathy, concepts of heroism, and the coming of age experience for youth from historically marginalized groups through novels, memoirs, and non-fiction books as well as workshops developed by humanities scholars & librarians.

Dust, Drought, and Dreams Gone Dry: A Traveling Exhibit and Public Programs for Libraries about the Dust Bowl

Implementation of a traveling exhibition and public programs for 25 libraries examining the history and impact of the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

In collaboration with the libraries of Oklahoma State University (OSU) and Mount Holyoke College, the American Library Association proposes a traveling exhibit and public programs for 40 libraries examining the history and legacy of the Dust Bowl. The project spotlights Ken Burns' film "The Dust Bowl," and brings to public view 2 little known Dust Bowl archives: online oral history interviews of Dust Bowl survivors at OSU, and letters and essays of Caroline Henderson, a Mount Holyoke alumna who farmed in Oklahoma throughout the Dust Bowl. Libraries will display the exhibit for 6 weeks and present at least 3 public humanities programs from a list provided. The project humanities themes include the interaction between humans and nature; the different ways human beings respond to adversity; and how people living in the Dust Bowl tried to understand their social, economic, and ecological environment. Cultural expressions of the Dust Bowl, such as Woody Guthrie's music, are also addressed.

Pride and Passion: The African American Baseball Experience

Implementation of a traveling exhibition that would tour to 20 libraries, examining African Americans' participation in organized baseball from the Civil War to the present.

The American Library Association, in cooperation with the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, Cooperstown, N.Y., proposes to develop a traveling exhibition for 20 libraries based upon the permanent Hall of Fame exhibition, "Pride and Passion--The African American Baseball Experience." The exhibit tells the story of African Americans' participation in baseball beginning with the Civil War Period and continuing to the present time, shows a national audience how baseball has long reflected the complicated and painful history of race relations in the United States, and gives libraries the opportunity to work with scholars and other speakers, such as players from the Negro League, to present public humanities programs that will attract a wide audience. A planning seminar, large array of educational and support materials, and web sites will support the tour. The tour will begin in Fall 2008 and continue through Fall 2010.

Soul of a People: Voices from the Federal Writers' Project - Library Outreach Programs

Implementation of a series of reading and film discussion programs at 30 public libraries, with a companion web site, that would occur simultaneously with the broadcasting of the NEH-supported documentary film Soul of a People: Voices from the Federal Writers' Project.

The American Library Association, in cooperation with Spark Media, a Washington, D.C.-based production company which specializes in issues of social change, will develop a series of five public humanities programs for presentation in 30 libraries coinciding with the public television broadcast of Spark Media's documentary film, "Soul of a People: Voices from the Writers' Project," about the Federal Writers' Project (FWP) of the Works Progress Administration during the 1930s. The "Soul of a People" documentary has received major funding from the NEH for scripting and production. The library outreach programs are designed to complement the documentary, encourage scholar-led discussion about the importance and the impact of the FWP for succeeding generations of Americans, reveal to a national audience in libraries the scope of the works produced by the FWP, and acquaint a new audience with the many online and print resources that provide access to primary resources from the FWP.

Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World - A Traveling Exhibition for Libraries

Implementation of a traveling panel exhibition, related public programming, training, and companion digital and curricular materials about the life of Benjamin Franklin and his contributions to the founding of the United States, to circulate to 30 sites nationwide.

The American Library Association proposes the creation of a photo-panel traveling exhibition, "Benjamin Franklin: In Search of a Better World," based upon a major exhibition developed by the Benjamin Franklin Tercentenary, a consortium of academic institutions in Philadelphia, to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Franklin's birth (1706-2006). The 1,000-square foot traveling exhibition will educate audiences in 30 U.S. communities about the life and works of Franklin, focusing on the breadth of his interests and accomplishments and on the complex man behind the myths. The project features an array of educational materials supporting the exhibition and a planning workshop for libraries on the tour, with presentations by the curator, exhibit designer, and librarians with experience in public programming. A site support notebook for libraries will feature program ideas, speaker lists, bibliographies, film lists, exhibit set up instructions, and other aids for tour libraries.
