Grant Awarded For Author Series


The library has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Florida Division of Arts and Culture. This funding will be used to bring writers of children’s and young adult literature to OCLS, either in-person or virtually, for readings or workshops as part of our Sunshine State Author Series. Each featured author has written a book that has been on the Sunshine State Young Readers Award or Florida Teen Reads lists. Past authors include Zetta Elliott (Dragons in a Bag) and Christopher Eliopoulos (Cosmic Commandos).
