2022 Jan Stauber-Sherlock Holmes Literacy Grant Awards
This year we provided grants of up to $800 to eleven (11) teachers and librarians to assist them in developing a teaching project to introduce more young people to Sherlock Holmes. The total amount awarded is $6,250. Here are the grant recipients for 2022:
1. Manda Caudill
Bowen Elementary Library, Stanton, KY
To encourage reading of Sherlock Holmes and other mystery books, the school will conduct a Sherlock Holmes-themed week to discuss and learn about who Sherlock Holme was.
2. Jennifer Momaney
Gay-Kimball Public Library
To inspire young readers through adventure and mystery, the library will set up a family-friendly escape room, themed around Sherlock Holmes adventures. Families will be inspired and encouraged to read the Holmes stories at home with their children.
