Laura Bush Grant opportunity for school libraries

The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries is again offering a grant opportunity for school libraries. The grant is for up to $7000 and all grant dollars are to be spent for books, e-books or magazines/serials in print, Braille or audio form. There are also eligibility requirements to consider, one being that “at least 85% of the school’s student population must qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch (FRL).” Make sure you review all the requirements before you apply! The deadline is December 14th 2015. Last year 131 grants were awarded out of the 538 applications. That’s a 25% success rate!
