World on the Move: 250,000 Years of Human Migration – applications close November 14th

ALA invites applications from public libraries in the United States and territories interested in hosting the traveling exhibition World on the Move: 250,000 Years of Human Migration, developed by the American Anthropological Association and the Smithsonian's Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

ALA will accept applications from October 10, 2022, to November 14, 2022. Learn more and apply online.

Fifteen public libraries will be selected to host the 1000-square-foot exhibit for approximately five weeks. Selected sites will also receive a $500 stipend to conduct public programs, events or activities related to the human migration themes explored in the exhibition.


Exploring Human Origins: Promoting a National Conversation on Human Evolution – applications close November 7th

ALA, in collaboration with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History's (NMNH) Human Origins Program, invites applications from public libraries interested in hosting the traveling exhibition Exploring Human Origins: Promoting a National Conversation on Human Evolution.

ALA will accept applications from September 12 to November 7, 2022. Learn more and apply online.

Six public libraries will be selected for the national tour. Working with leading scientists from the NMNH Human Origins Program, the libraries will engage audiences across a wide spectrum - from those who do not question the scientific study of human origins to those who are troubled by its findings - to engage the complex field of human evolution research in ways that are understandable, fulfilling, captivating and relevant.
