Aspen Library Receives Prestigious Grant

Our library received a grant from the LBSS Endowment Fund of the Illinois School Library Media Association (ISLMA).  Aspen School was one of forty-five libraries to receive a set of 2013-2014 Monarch Award nominated books.  More that 165 libraries applied to receive one of the Reader’s Choice awards grants given this year.  The Monarch Award is an Illinois Readers’ Choice Award for grades K-3.  There are twenty books on the list selected from a range of genres and are wonderful choices for students of these ages.
Aspen School also received the Read for Information grant from this organization last year.
