The Utah Endowment for the Humanities has awarded $5,940 to the Utah State Library Division to support projects associated with the "Year of the Young Reader."

The program is a national promotion sponsored by the Library of Congress, the National Center for the Book and the Children's Literature Center.The state money will be used to fund a series of programs in which families will read selected children's books by Utah authors and then meet with a scholar at their local library to discuss the books.
