The Harvard Park Library recently received a grant from the Illinois School Library Media Association. The Read for Information Grant funds address the Common Core expectations to read informational text. Teachers collaborated by offering suggestions of topics and types of texts needed, and the $1500 grant purchased 97 new books for the library. Books are now available for students and teachers to borrow. Thank you to ISLMA for this opportunity to enhance the library’s collection to assist the implementation of the Common Core State Standards.
