Donations are optional and will be given by Members and Friends of the Children's Book Guild of Washington, DC.
The Guild is supporting its DC-Metro Youth Literacy Grants for the May Nonfiction Award Event. Every year the Children's Book Guild provides several $500 grants to schools in the DC area. Schools receive funds to acquire books for their libraries, media centers, or classrooms. Schools make their selections and purchases through First Book Marketplace.
