Sen. Preston Announces Indian Springs School District Awarded Library Grant (Chicago, IL) — With support from State Senator Willie Preston, Indian Springs School District 109 in Justice received $2,000 for resources to libraries through books, e-books, audiobooks, periodicals, multilingual materials, technology and programs.

“Funding our school libraries is key to providing our students with a quality education,” said Preston (D-Chicago). “Equipping our schools with these necessary resources will help our schools prepare each and every student for a better tomorrow.”

Based on a statutory formula, school districts receive $0.885 per student enrolled at each school with a qualified library. 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 grants, awarded once every fiscal year, support school library services for over 1 million students enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade across the state.
