Michigan Center for the Book
About MCFB Grants
A goal of the Center for the Book is to bring literary activities to a broad range of people that might not otherwise have these experiences. One way we do this is to provide small grants for literary events in Michigan. The grant program is intended to assist libraries, nonprofits or schools to have free, public events that enhance or complement our mission to promote an awareness of books, reading, literacy, authors and Michigan's rich literary heritage. Grant funds are generously provided by the Center for the Book affiliate members.
If you have any questions about the grants or the process, please email Tim Gleisner, Michigan Center for the Book Coordinator. Please include MCFB Grant in the subject line. Or phone Tim at 517-335-8389.
