Illinois State Senate District 42 issued the following on Jan. 16.

Four local school districts will receive nearly $39,000 in grants through the Illinois secretary of state’s School Library Grant program, Senator Linda Holmes announced.

The grants, which are issued by the Illinois State Library, are meant to help public schools offer more library books and materials to students.

“Libraries are fantastic resources for students to find content for research, audio and video materials, and books to boost their love of reading,” said Holmes, an Aurora Democrat. “This support will go a long way toward helping school libraries offer new and updated materials as children hone their reading skills and discover the thrill of picking up a great book.”

Schools receiving school library grants include:

Aurora West CUSD #129 -- $8,601.75

East Aurora CUSD #131 -- $9,595.50

Indian Prairie CUSD # 204 – $19,908.75

Illinois Math & Science Academy -- $750.00
