Local schools receiving grant for library books, materialsSPRINGFIELD – Fifteen school districts in the 40th Senate District have been awarded library grants from the Illinois Secretary of State’s School District Library Grant Program. The program is designed to help provide more library books and materials for public school students in Illinois.

More than $24,200 will be awarded to the fifteen school districts.

“Having access to resources that broaden horizons and improve reading skills is paramount to future success as a student and as an adult in the workplace,” said State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D – Chicago Heights).
