Joyce Applauds Over $11,000 in Library Grants for Southland School Districts (Kankakee, IL) — State Senator Patrick Joyce announced six school districts in the southland area have received more than $11,000 to provide resources to libraries through books, e-books, audiobooks, periodicals, multilingual materials, technology and programs.

“School libraries provide students with a variety of resources they need to excel academically and explore their interests,” said Joyce (D-Essex). “We need to ensure they are funded efficiently to continue benefitting students.”

Funding for the School District Library Grant Program originates from the General Reserve Fund and is appropriated for this purpose by the Illinois General Assembly.

The following school districts received a total of $11,341:
