Ready to Read Grants

The Ready to Read grant program is managed by the State Library and distributes state general funds to legally established public libraries in Oregon on a yearly basis. Libraries use the Ready to Read grant to fund early literacy services and/or summer reading programs. Every year, libraries must apply for funds and then report on how their grant-funded activities support youth in their communities. Learn more in our detailed guide here
