School Library Grants Approved for Three School Districts Located in Rep. Peter Breen’s House District

State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) announced today that $5,159 in state-sponsored school library grant money has been approved for school districts located in the 48th Legislative House District.

The School District Library Grant Program is designed to help provide more library books and materials for students attending public schools in Illinois. The state legislature has authorized up to a $.75 per pupil expenditure for qualifying schools. The grant award is based on funds appropriated by the General Assembly and the official enrollment as of the previous September 30th of a school district.

“Initiatives that put print and digital educational material in the hands of school children are vitally important,” said Breen. “I am pleased to know that a portion of this year’s school library grant allocation will be put to good use right here in the 48th District.”

Specifically, the following grants will be processed by the Secretary of State’s Office next week and then forwarded to the Comptroller’s office for payment:
  • Community Consolidated School District #89: $1,560.75
  • Glen Ellyn School District #41: $2,551.50
  • Lisle Community Unit School District #202: $1,046.25
