School districts get library money

The secretary of state's office has given $1.4 million in grants that are expected to benefit students served by school library media programs.

The grants were awarded based on a formula of 75 cents per student, with a minimum grant award of $750. The program is used to acquire fiction and nonfiction books, education CDs and DVDs, library subscriptions to electronic resources, and technology improvements.

The Sterling school district will get the most in the Sauk Valley, with $2,409. Dixon follows at $1,653 and Morrison at $786. Other districts, including Rock Falls High, Morrison, Amboy, AFC and Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico, received $750 each.

The secretary of state, Jesse White, is the state librarian.
