Milby High School is the lucky recipient of a $6,800 grant that will be used to update their campus library for the coming 2016-17 school year. Milby is one of only 130 school from 30 states across the country to receive the grant from the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries.

“Congratulations to all our winners,” said Mrs. Laura Bush. “With this grant, your librarian will order new books and materials for your school – something everyone can enjoy.  I challenge every student to build your reading skills during the summer break, and come back to your new and improved school library ready to learn next year.”

The Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries provides grants to schools so they can extend, update, and diversify the book and print collections in their libraries with the goal of encouraging students to develop a love of reading and learning. Since its inception in 2002, it has awarded more than $13.4 million to more than 2,500 schools across the country.
