Sec­ond round of li­brary fund­ing

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A £3mil­lion fund aimed at boost­ing school li­brary re­sources has been re­launched by the Scot­tish Govern­ment.

Ed­u­ca­tion author­i­ties have un­til May 14 to get ac­cess to this year’s al­lo­ca­tion of £450,000. The Scot­tish Li­brary Im­prove­ment Fund, which of­fers a to­tal of £1mil­lion over three years, was launched in Septem­ber 2017 to sup­port school li­brary projects as part of a wider ap­proach to im­prov­ing lit­er­acy and ed­u­ca­tional at­tain­ment.

Scot­land’s Deputy First Min­is­ter John Swin­ney said: “I would en­cour­age all schools to con­sider ap­ply­ing for the fund and use the in­vest­ment to make their school li­brary an ex­cit­ing and in­spir­ing place to learn – at the heart of the school com­mu­nity.”
