Grant Assistance from Lee & Low Books


Grant Assistance from Lee & Low Books

Did you recently win a grant for diverse, culturally responsive books?

Are you currently in the process of applying for a grant and would like to use Lee & Low Books as a resource or vendor for multicultural literature?

Literacy funding is one of the biggest barriers to getting books to students in need. Whether you are looking to jump-start your library or sustain your school’s literacy initiatives and move forward into an equitable, culturally responsive classroom, we are here to help!  

Lee & Low Books has an expert Educator Team to help you place your wish-list books onto shelves and into students’ hands.

We are here to help whichever stage you are in:

  • curating the books for your specific program or students
  • providing descriptions about the books, creators, and supplemental resources available
  • selecting and purchasing the books when the grant is funded

We will build a curated collection of books with you:

  • aligned to the grant’s mission
  • based on your budget parameters
  • committed to your readers’ needs and interests
  • highlighting a wide range of diverse characters and historical figures by award-winning authors and illustrators from diverse backgrounds

Please note that Lee & Low Books does not award grants.
