Literacy Lives: Connecting School and Community with Reading and Storytelling Previous Read 2 Succeed Winners The North Carolina School Library Media Association is pleased to offer Read 2 Succeed grants to NCSLMA members.  These grants are available to K-12 media coordinators, in partnership with classroom teachers, for innovative projects that foster integration of media / information skills into the K-12 curriculum.  The focus of the Read 2 Succeed grant program is on individual media coordinators and teachers rather than on district-wide projects.
