A Cherokee County School District media specialist has earned a grant to extend services outside of the media center’s walls!
E.T. Booth Middle School media specialist Amanda Graves successfully applied for a Little Free Library grant from the national nonprofit organization.
She received a book-sharing box and mounting post from the organization, which has been installed outside on the school’s campus, and a selection of books to stock it that were provided by learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Ms. Graves is one of only 100 grant recipients nationwide; other winners include literacy groups, Native American reservations, healthcare centers, homeless shelters, laundromats and more.
“We are happy to recognize the hard work of our stewards who made 100,000 Little Free Library (LFL) installations possible by granting 100 of our libraries where they are needed most,” said Greig Metzger, executive director of LFL. “While our Impact Library Program makes grants to all types of underserved communities, this special initiative prioritizes organizations that serve children.”
