Games and Gaming Round Table announces the opening of 2022 “Game On!” Grant Application Period

CHICAGO, IL – The Games and Gaming Round Table of the American Library Association is proud to sponsor its annual grant program to enable libraries to develop gaming programs or collections for their patrons. Through the “Game On!” grants, $500.00 will be available to be awarded to assist a library or libraries in developing gaming programs or collections for their communities.

“GameRT is very excited every year to see the cool proposals that come in from all over the country,” said Thomas Vose, GameRT President.  “This grant helps us play an active role in helping bring engaging gaming programs to libraries of all types nationwide.”

ALA members in good standing currently employed at a public, school, academic or special library in the United States or Canada are eligible to apply. Libraries will need to illustrate a plan for a sustainable gaming program created with the funds as well as financial need and institutional support for the proposed program.

The deadline for applications is March 1, 2022 and the grant winner will be announced at GameRT’s “ALA Play” event at the 2022 ALA Annual conference in June.  Additional information and application can be found at
