Duncan Announces $18.5 Million to Improve School Libraries and Increase Reading in Low-Income Schools

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the award of $18.5 million to enhance libraries in 57 low-income school districts across the United States.

The grants will help schools improve reading achievement by providing students with increased access to current school library materials; technologically advanced media centers; and professionally certified media specialists.

Funded through the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries program, grants can be used to acquire books and other library holdings; improve school libraries’ technological resources and capabilities; facilitate Internet links and other resource-sharing networks; provide professional development for library personnel; enhance opportunities for collaboration among library specialists, teachers and administrators; and expand hours of access to library services.
