I've lost the original post and don't see it in the archives or I
would have sent a personl reply.

I wrote a grant a few years ago to develop a preschool library
within the high school library. I didn't target "easy reading"
per se. I wanted to bring in a wide variety of the best children's
literature available plus some resources regarding the importance
of reading aloud to children, selecting and using children's
literature, etc. The main tie-in was with the child psychology
courses that were taught already through the home ec department.
I provided a weekly discussion/lecture and we held some public
preschool story hours -- operated by the child psych students.

My building budget was dismal. I just couldn't have supported
the project through regular funds. But I received the grant
on my first try.
