Thank you for your interest in the Pennsylvania Humanities Council's 2019-21 Teen Reading Lounge (TRL) project. Before beginning this application, we recommend reading through the full guidelines and application form on our website.

The Pennsylvania Humanities Council (PHC) will hold a webinar on May 1, 2019 from 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. to preview the 2019-21 project, eligibility requirements and how to apply. Registration is required: https://pahumanities.zoom.us/meeting/register/4093af95b571f34c8c34be5db4a05ad8. PHC encourages libraries that can't make the live webinar to register so they can access the recording.

Applications must be completed by midnight May 31, 2019. Libraries will be notified by July 31 if they've been selected for the project.

IMPORTANT! There is no way to save answers in this system and go back to an incomplete application. PHC recommends you download and complete the 2018-21 guidelines and application in full before entering it into the system.

Questions about the program, application process and forms should be directed to Jennifer Danifo at jdanifo@pahumanities.org.

About the Pennsylvania Humanities Council
The Pennsylvania Humanities Council is an independent partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities and part of a network of 56 state humanities councils that spans the nation and U.S. jurisdictions. Today, across the commonwealth, we put the humanities in action to create positive change. Our programs and grants bring Pennsylvanians together to build avenues for civic involvement and community development, and for youth and adult learners to strengthen skills for school, work, and personal improvement. Our operations are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities through the Federal/State Partnership Office, with additional program funding from generous individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies. Teen Reading Lounge is made possible by Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services administered by the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, Department of Education, Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Wolf, Governor.  Additional support is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, generous individuals, foundations, and corporations.
