LibraryPLAINFIELD – State Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant is thrilled to announce that seven local school districts in the 49th Illinois Senate District will receive nearly $54,000 through grants from the Illinois secretary of state’s School Library Grant program.

The funds help school libraries improve technology by purchasing new computers or improving Wi-Fi connectivity, acquire books, educational CDs and DVDs, and library subscriptions to electronic resources.

“Our school libraries expand and develop the minds of our students,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “These vital funds will help equip our school libraries with the resources to give our students the opportunity to meet the challenges of the 21st century.”

Bertino-Tarrant commends Secretary of State and State Librarian Jesse White for his work in implementing this program in Illinois and advocating for our schools libraries.

“Thanks to Secretary of State Jesse White’s efforts, Will County schools will receive more than $70,000 in funding,” Bertino-Tarrant said. “His efforts continue to give our school libraries the extra support they need to help our studentslearn and prepare themselves for their future.”
