SCHOLASTIC READING CLUB FOR SCHOOL LIBRARY

 

Selma, Alabama  - November 4, 2016 - Southside High School received a $4,000.00 grant today from bestselling author James Patterson to support its school library. In addition, Scholastic Reading Club will match each dollar of Patterson’s donation with “bonus points” that teachers can use to acquire books and other materials for their classrooms.  Southside High School was selected amongst thousands of applications for funding grants. To learn more, listen to Patterson’s exclusive interview about the critical need for school libraries on the “Scholastic Reads” podcast: oomscholasticblog.com/podcast/james-patterson-loves-libraries

In the first-ever partnership of its kind, Patterson joined forces with Scholastic Reading Club to administer funding applications to their network of 62,000 schools and 800,000 teachers. Schools entering were asked to share the story of their school library, including past efforts to make improvements and “great ideas to help create a brighter future.” Patterson personally read and selected the winning recipients of the grants. Based on past winners, school libraries across the country have been using  this funding to purchase new books, add bookshelves, make improvements to their catalog systems, and expand their programing The full list of grant recipients is available online at http://www.scholastic.com/pattersonpartnership/recipients
