Krug Awards III

Posted By Admin, Tuesday, October 2, 2012

The final four of our 2012 Krug Fund grant recipients for Banned Books Week 2012 programming.  Amazing. 

RFK REK Library

The Robert E. Kennedy Library at California Polytechnic State University was a 2012 Krug Fund grant recipient for a banned author talk, Read-Out, and wall-sized Infographic featuring the most frequently challenged books of the last decade, among other events.

Lawrence (Kan) Public Library

Lawrence (Kan.) Public Library was awarded a 2012 Krug Fund grant for "Banned Books Week Trading Cards,” a daily giveaway of baseball-like cards depicting the artwork and "statistics” of various banned and challenged books. Other events sponsored by the library will be a Read-Out, photo booth, panel discussion of local writers and attorneys with experience dealing with book challenges and "Cozy up to a Banned Book,” an interactive installation wherein patrons can sit in a recliner and read various library books. 

St. Catharine College

St. Catharine College (Ky.) received a 2012 Krug Fund grant for a cook-out, chalk drawings and their fifth annual, three-day-long Banned Books Week Read-Out. They also will sponsor an essay contest for local high school students.

Simon Sanchez High School

The final 2012 BBW feature is Simon Sanchez High School (Guam), for Read-Outs, posters and a "Roadside Wave,” featuring celebratory boards and signs. This will be the first commemoration of Banned Books Week for the school, based in Yigo on the northernmost part of Guam. In 2000, the school library was decimated by a typhoon, and to date, not all of the resources have been replaced. This is the first Judith Krug Fund grant for an organization in a U.S. territory.
