Supporting Library Humanities Programming During COVID

Core activities of the American Library Association's Public Programs Office and nine full-time staff salaries.

The American Library Association’s (ALA) Public Programs Office (PPO) requests $499,990 in ARP funding to continue serving libraries and library workers, sustaining and growing their efforts to provide humanities programming and content during this critical time. This relief will support ALA PPO through four key work areas: 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.
