Buckeye Book Fair Literacy Awards

The Buckeye Book Fair promotes literacy by bringing Ohio authors together with the reading public for an annual book festival and by bringing the Buckeye Book Fair experience to Ohio schools, libraries, and reading programs through our free books and author visits awards.

From fostering and encouraging a love of reading to enhancing and updating book collections in classrooms and libraries, the Buckeye Book Fair has awarded more than $200,000 worth of books since its inception.



Applications are open to: Ohio reading programs, Ohio public libraries, and Ohio elementary and secondary schools both public and private.

Proposals for Buckeye Book Fair literacy awards are to have a special project using books by or about Ohioans and to demonstrate financial need.



Please tailor your grant submission to the specific requests of our application.

In evaluating applications to determine the recipients, the Buckeye Book Fair Literacy Awards Committee will consider the impact of the project, the financial need of the applicant, and evidence of careful planning in preparing the project.



The deadline for applications is September 10, 2018. Winners will be notified by mail or email no later than October 10th.

Submit your completed application by September 10, 2018 or request an extension, by emailing buckeyebookfair@gmail.com. Send paper copy applications to Buckeye Book Fair, 527 N. Market St, Ste 2, Wooster OH 44691.
