Check it Out: Grant Opportunity!

Grant Name: Laura Bush Library Grant

Funded by: Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries

Description: In order to promote a love of reading, the goal of the Laura Bush Foundation (LBF) is to provide books to school libraries and students that most need them. Consequently, funds are available only for library books and magazine/serial copies and subscriptions. The Laura Bush Foundation is unable to honor requests for staffing, shelving, furniture, equipment, software, videos, classroom book sets, or any kind of book guides, tests, or exams. The Foundation strives for wide geographic distribution in the support it offers, making grants of up to $6,000 to update, extend, and diversify the book collections of the libraries that receive them. All LBF grants are made to individual schools rather than to school districts, county systems, private organizations, foundations, or other entities. Only one application per school is allowed per year.
