APS awarded $35,000 to improve library book collections

This spring, Media Specialists at seven Atlanta Public Schools received grants from the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries to expand, update and diversify their schools’ library book collections.

APS was awarded more than any other district in Georgia. The Foundation announced last month that 219 school libraries were chosen to receive grants totaling more than $1 million dollars this year.

Here is the list of this year’s grant-winning Atlanta Public Schools and their Media Specialists. Each will each receive $5,000.

The grants are funded through donations to the Laura Bush Foundation from individuals, corporations and foundations.
