booksCHICAGO – Two local school districts are the recipients of the Illinois Secretary of State’s School Library Grant program, State Senator Celina Villanueva (D-Chicago) announced today.

“Helping public schools expand their libraries will go a long way toward developing not only reading skills, but a love for reading that will last a lifetime,” Villanueva said. “When I was a student I spent countless hours at my school library lost in the pages of a book. I carried that love for reading with me into adulthood and I am grateful the educational foundation my library provided me.”
