$5oo,ooo To School Libraries in Louisiana and Mississippi

Laura Bush Foundation Gives Money to School Libraries Hurt by Hurricane Katrina!

In The New York Times:

Nearly a dozen schools in Louisiana and one in Mississippi will get a share of more than $500,000 in grants from the Laura Bush Foundation to rebuild their libraries. Mrs. Bush made the announcement as she visited a school in New Orleans. The donations bring to $3.7 million the total amount of grant money the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries has given to schools in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Texas since Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma struck in 2005.
