Grants for Libraries: A How-To-Do-It Manual, order it from

the ALA website or Amazon.com.

Library Journal, Starred Review:
“Grants for Libraries is like the Boy Scouts’ field manual when it comes to grant-writing and development: it is an essential, authoritative, step-by-step guidebook to securing the funding your library needs….this essential “how-to” manual makes a complex topic comprehensible. Grab it and go “granting”!”
 
Booklist:
"This book should be at the side of every grant-writing librarian."
 
Midwest Book Review:
"A "must-have" resource especially for library professionals."
