The Library Binding Institute (LBI) is offering assistance grants to
those whose libraries were affected by Hurricanes Katrina and/or
Rita. The purpose of these grants is to enhance the professional
development and improve the expertise of binding staff and
librarians responsible for commercial binding, binding decisions,
and binding advocacy in their libraries. These grants have been
established by the Library Binding Institute (LBI) for attendance at
the morning and/or afternoon modules of the preconference workshop.
The grants will cover the half-day registration cost ($99 value) for
a staff member or a librarian from libraries affected by Hurricanes
Katrina and/or Rita to attend the morning and/or afternoon
preconference modules. Applicants can apply for grants to cover
their attendance of both modules. More than one person from the same
library can apply.

Please submit a cover letter with the name and primary contact
information.   Non-ALA members may also apply.  Please include:

    1.  Description of the person's job, which must include
        commercial binding preparation responsibilities, binding
        decision making, and/or binding advocacy. Please indicate
        the length of time in this position, describe the need for
        taking this workshop, and how your library was affected by
        Hurricane Katrina and/or Rita.

    2.  A one-page vita of nominated candidate. Electronic
