This year, the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries awarded $1.5 million in library grants. Many of the libraries will use the funds to update and diversify their collections.
“We can’t wait to get audio books and more engaging nonfiction books added to our collection with this grant,” said Greg D’Addario, Rolling Terrace media specialist.
