$800,000 for disaster-damaged public school libraries

This program is targeted specifically to public school libraries in the Gulf Coast and around the country. The funding for the initial grants is $800,000, with individual library awards ranging from $5,000 to $15,000. The funds will be used to purchase books, media, and library equipment that support learning in a school library environment. First priority will be given to school libraries impacted by hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Wilma.
