Area School Libraries Get Part of $1.5 million Grant Money

Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White has awarded over $1.2 million in FY 2020 School District Library Grant Program awards to 684 public school districts. More than 1.5 million Illinois students served by school library programs will benefit from the grants.

Several Sauk Valley School Districts received a portion of the funding.  Several such as Polo, Ashton and Amboy received $750.00 while other districts received larger amounts.  Dixon received $1,942.50 and Sterling School District received $2,385.75.

The formula used to calculate how much each school gets is based on .75 cents per student.
