Jefferson awarded $4,000 library grant

January 6, 2016

Jefferson Middle School has received $4,000 from the James Patterson Partnership with Scholastic, part of a $1.75 million pledge to support school libraries. They are one of 467 recipients across the country.

“We are excited to be the recipient of this grant,” said Librarian Anne Groesch. “Our goal is to maintain a climate of reading at Jefferson and a great place to foster such a climate is through our school library. $4,000 worth of new library books will help make our upcoming JMS Book Challenge a huge success.”
