Almost 1.7 million students reached

Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White has awarded nearly $1.4 million in FY14 School District Library Grant Program awards to 656 public school districts. Nearly 1.7 million Illinois students served by school library media programs will benefit from the grants.

“The school library is a place where children have access to resources and opportunities for achieving academic excellence,” White said. “I am proud to award this grant to ensure our school libraries stay vital and relevant while educating our students.”

Grants were awarded based on a formula of $.75 per student, with a minimum grant award of $750. The School District Library Grant Program is used to acquire fiction and/or non-fiction books, educational CDs and DVDs, library subscriptions to electronic resources, and to improve technology by purchasing new computers or improving Wi-Fi connectivity.
