New Yorkers Read Round TwoSeptember 2010


Because of the success of the New Yorkers Read Grant, offered in 2008 and carried out through 2008-2009, Macy*s has generously offered to fund another round. This time, however the grant will focus on elementary grade students in grades 3-5. It will again focus on non-fiction and the use of postcards and reading passports to reach out to the community and recruit students as peer reading motivators. All NYC public schools containing grades 3-5, with a central school library and librarian are eligible to apply for the New Yorkers Read Round Two grant.
