Support for Disaster-Affected Libraries

In collaboration with the American Library Association, the American Association of School Libraries, and the National Education Association, Dollar General provides support to public school libraries in the company’s communities through the Beyond Words program. Libraries that have been severely damaged due to natural disaster, fire, or federally-recognized terrorist acts are eligible to apply for funding to replace or supplements books, media, and/or library equipment. (The impact on the libraries can be through direct loss or through enrollment increases due to displaced/evacuated students.)
Grants generally range between $5,000 and $15,000.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
