Xenia Community Schools Foundation Grants Enhance Library Resources in Xenia Community Schools
The Xenia Community Schools Foundation (XCSF) recently announced the first round of classroom and library grants, totaling over $9000.00, for the 2014-2015 school year.
This year the Foundation is supporting several library grants. The largest request was submitted by Xenia Community Schools District Librarian Kay Gerspacher. The application identified the need for funds for biography book purchases. The XCSF has funded similar genre focused book grants in prior years. The Foundation recognizes that need for new reading resources is an integral part of the ongoing educational process.
The “Reading for Life” grant will provide for the purchase of biographies to be housed in the libraries at the five elementary buildings (Arrowood, Cox, McKinley, Shawnee and Tecumseh) and the two middle schools (Central and Warner). Approximately 2000 3rd to 8th graders will be able to use these new resources for research, reports and reading. The Foundation is providing $4,000.00 to purchase 30-40 books per building.
